I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Advanced Research in Experimental and Applied Linguistics (ARiEAL) at McMaster Univeristy. My current research investigates the development of literacy in ESL students. I collect longitudinal data, including eye movements during reading, standardized cognitive-linguistic assessments, large-scale experimental psycholinguistic studies and measures of academic attainment.
