The goal of my research is to understand what causes reading and language impairments in children, how these impairments should be assessed and treated, and how they relate to emotional health. I am a passionate advocate for the rapid translation of evidence-based knowledge into practice.
Over the last 20 years, I have held research positions at the University of Western Australia, Oxford University, and Macquarie University. I am currently the Translational Director of the Macquarie University Centre of Reading, and the Founding Director of the Macquarie University Reading Clinic. I am also founder of the Cognitive Science ERP Laboratory
