My research investigates language development and real-time processing in two bilingual populations, i.e., bilingual children and adult 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 L2 learners of English.

I received my Ph.D. in Linguistics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My Ph.D. project investigated how Cantonese-speaking and Dutch-speaking L2 learners of English use prosody to process and interpret focus in their L2 English, supervised by Prof. Virginia Yip. I am a member of Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre.
