Research interests

My research investigates the way we learn to read, in particular how we learn the relationship between a word’s spelling and its sound and meaning. In my experiments, adults learn to read new words written in an unfamiliar alphabet, to simulate what it’s like for children learning to read for the first time. I look at how different factors affect learning, and also use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to look at how the brain responds to these new languages.
