Research Interests:

My research is concerned with statistical learning, reading, and their intersection, mostly from the prism of individual-differences. I am currently particularly interested in how individuals differ from one another in their literacy skills given their learning capacities and the properties of their native language’s writing system. I also have a soft spot for psychometrics, methodology, and statistical modeling.
