Current Research

My research primarily involves tracking people's eyes while they read, in order to gain an insight into the cognitive processes underlying language processing and the oculomotor control system itself. During my current post-doctoral position I will use eye-tracking to investigate age-related changes in how people process and interpret sentences, by comparing young adults (aged 18-25) with people aged 65 and over.

Past Research

I completed my PhD at the University of Southampton under the supervision of Simon Liversedge and Denis Drieghe, before moving to the University of Edinburgh for two years to work as a post-doctoral researcher with Patrick Sturt and Andrea Martin. My work in these previous positions has examined how readers process information in the parafovea, how readers process multi-word units such as spaced compounds, how people predict words while reading, whether readers adapt the spatial characteristics of their eye movements to sentences made of short vs. long words, and whether readers sometimes integrate words into a sentence representation prior to full lexical identification.
