My main research interest is language processing, especially the reading and spelling skills of Malay-English and Mandarin-English speaking bilingual children and adults. I hold a split-post as Director for the M.Sc. (Speech and Language Pathology) Programme in the YLL School of Medicine (http://www.med.nus.edu.sg/dgms/SLP.shtml), where I supervise clinical research and evidence-based practice with people who have acquired language impairments as a result of head injury, stroke or dementia. I am also working with kindergarten teachers and speech-language pathologists to develop assessment and intervention tools that are culturally and linguistically appropriate for the local population.
