Research Interests

My research aims at understanding the relationships among language, brain, and culture. In particular, my lab examines the dynamic interactions in the ecosystems of language learning and knowledge representation, and the corresponding dynamic changes in the native and non-native cross-linguistic brains. We investigate the computational and neural mechanisms underlying language acquisition and representation in both native and non-native speakers of Western languages (e.g., English) and Asian languages (e.g., Chinese). Our research identifies common and distinct cognitive and neural processes in language acquisition and representation. To achieve these goals, we rely on a variety of convergent behavioral, computational, and neuroimaging methodologies and technologies (e.g., cognitive testing, artificial neural network modeling, virtual reality, and functional magnetic resonance imaging).
