Personal profile


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Macquarie University. I am interested in understanding the coordination of perceptual and cognitive processes (e.g., vision, attention, memory, language processing) underlying natural reading, especially in whether and how various writing systems influence readers’ reading behaviors differently. For example, Chinese texts are visually (and perhaps linguistically) much denser than alphabetic languages due to its complex hierarchical structure and lack of space, thus, how might our cognitive system response and adapt to Chinese reading, which needs more severe cognitive demands on early visual processing? I use eye tracking, combining with other methodologies to jointly answer the questions above.

Research interests

Eye movements in reading; Cross-language reading; Reading development; Reading in various media context

Research student supervision

I currently supervise students in the following research projects:

  • The impact of visual and auditory redundancy on subtitle processing;
  • Stroke processing in visually complex, two-dimensional Chinese characters.

Community engagement

I am currently:

  • the academic lead of FHS (SimHub Annex) Eye Tracking Lab;  
  • member of the Eye Tracking Facility Committee in the Department of Cognitive Science;
  • member of the Cognitive Science Internationalisation Committee.
