My research is concerned with speech perception, articulation, and how speech and reading connect. By exploring the neurocognitive origins of typical reading and adding a developmental perspective on speech and reading, my research tries to find early predictors for early reading development. My current research at Haskins Laboratories mainly focuses more on learning and plasticity in disabled readers. I am interested in the dynamic adaptive neurocognitive changes during reading intervention, by tracking neural signals across multiple times with functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) tests.
