I am on the Psychology faculty at the National University of Singapore. I conduct research on early language and cognitive development. Please see the “Selected Publications” page to learn more about ongoing research in my lab.
My research is guided by the following questions.
1. How do babies learn the meanings of words?
2. What type of language environment is most helpful for building up a vocabulary in early childhood?
3. How do vowels, consonants and lexical tones modify early lexical processes?
4. Does multiple language acquisition modify cognitive and linguistic functioning in a young child?
