My Profile

BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


My research focus is infants' speech perception, speech production, and word learning, and the impact of otitis media with effusion on infants' developing language skills. I am particularly interested in the role of the linguistic environment in shaping infants' perception and production. I also study infants' perception of tone contrasts (from tone languages such as Thai & Cantonese)

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
