Research Interests: 

My research interests center on exploring individual differences (mainly age and second language) in emotion language processing by using EEG/ERP and fMRI methods. My previous work focused on how personality traits could affect visual word recognition and joke processing in the brain. Currently, I'm working with Dr. Vicky Lai in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory.
