Associate Professor, Director of Teaching & Learning,
I graduated from the University of Glasgow with an MA(Hons) in Psychology, an MSc in Psycholinguistic Research methods and a PhD in written language comprehension in healthy Ageing. I gained post-doctoral experience at both University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow, investigating the neural and cognitive mechanisms that are affected in early stages of Alzheimer's disease, using dense array EEG/ERP techniques, before working at the University of Birmingham. My Orcid profile I.D is 0000-0001-7200-8691
I use a range of behavioural techniques as well as eye tracking and electroencephalogy in my research. I am interested in factors that influence how deeply we comprehend discourse. I have explored how these factors might change across the lifespan and more recently in bilinguals/multilinguals. I am also interested in written word recognition as well as speech perception in bilinguals/multilinguals. More recently, i have become interested in exploring how language background can influence executive functioning. I also investigate ways in which you can measure language background and language proficiency. I also investigate more applied areas such as factors influencing food choice, the effects of music on anxiety and mental health.
I am the Director of Teaching & Learning, I am the Course Director for the BSc Psychology & Cognitive Neuroscience as well as being the Senior Tutor.
I have previously taught on these courses in the School of Psychology:

I am currently working on a project which aims to create a database of translation norms of Bahasa Malaysia-English words. The aim is to develop a Bahasa Malaysia language proficiency test. By creating the database and proficiency test, these resources can be used by researchers interested in investigating cross-language processing differences between Bahasa Malaysia and English.
I have worked on the effects of age on recognition memory as well as how age can impact on discourse comprehension
In the future, i will be focusing on factors that affect inclusion in the workplace. The idea is to explore what challenges exist for people with mental health issues and increase the chances of employments for these individuals.
