I am a psycholinguist who is fascinated by how learners acquire mechanisms to process finer elements of grammar, especially those which don't exist in one's native language. My research interests also include the role of phonological features in grammatical processing during language production and comprehension.
I obtained my Doctor of Philosophy degree at the University of Edinburgh (2015-2020), supervised by Professor Holly Branigan and Dr. Vasiliki Chondrogianni. My PhD work examined the source of L2 inflectional errors in Mandarin speakers of English and how they process morphsyntactic violations across comprehension modalities. My work on inflectional production among native Mandarin learners of English has been published in Journal of Memory and Language (link). Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the University of Oslo, primarily as a member of the Machine Learning Aphasia project. The project examines predictors of morphosyntactic production (e.g. inflectional morphology) in individuals with post-stroke agrammatic aphasia across different languages。
