Research Interests

I use eye-tracking and other methods (MRI, EEG) to investigate:
• The interaction of visual and linguistic processing, especially as it relates to reading.
• The cortical networks underlying vision, attention, language, reading, and the interaction of these processes.
• The influence of context and task on reading, visual word recognition, and other visual processing.
• Individual differences in and the development of language processing and eye movement control.
• Using eye movements in cognitive assessment and the diagnosis of clinical and neurological disorders.
