Professor & Head of Department of Psychology

Macquarie University

​I'm currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Psychology at Macquarie University.  My research uses computational modeling, eye-movement experiments, and other methods (e.g., ERP) to understand the perceptual, cognitive, and motor processes involved in reading.  I've authored more than 70 articles on this topic in international journals, including Brain and Behavioral Sciences, Psychological Review, Psychological Science, and Trends in Cognitive Sciences.  I've also received fellowships from the Hanse Institute of Advanced Studies (Germany), the Leverhulme Trust (United Kingdom), and the National 1,000 Talents Award (China).  My forthcoming book, entitled Computational Models of Reading: A Handbook, provides a comprehensive review of models that are used to understand the mental processes involved in reading, and describes a new computational model of reading in its entirety, Über-Reader.  When I'm not working, I spend my time traveling the world with my partner and scientific collaborator, Dr. Lili Yu.
