Emily Haoyan Ge

I am currently Research Assistant Professor at the Open University of Hong Kong. I received my PhD in Linguistics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My PhD project investigated how L2 learners of English use prosody to process focus in their L2 English, supervised by Prof. Virginia Yip. I am a member of Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre.

My research investigates language development and real-time processing in bilingual children and second language learners. I use two approaches in my research: (i) combining theoretical and experimental perspectives (predominately I use eye-tracking paradigm to investigate sentence processing); (ii) cross-linguistic approach, e.g., language processing in Cantonese-speaking and Dutch-speaking second language learners of English.
