Dr. Leher Singh joined our department in July 2010. Prior to moving to Singapore, she worked at Boston University where her research program focused on early language development. Her research interests are in the area of infant word recognition and in the role of emotion in facilitating memories for words in infants. She is also interested in infant predictors of later language development. Although most of her research is focused on typically developing populations, she has researched emotion and prosody perception in individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
