Areas of interest

I'm interested in dyslexia and skilled reading in different languages. Recently I've been researching ways to accurately identify reading ability in simultaneous multilingual populations, such as found in Malaysia and across SE Asia, and how the specific language profiles might impact such approaches. I am also interested in pedagogical research, with a current focus on neuromyth belief in educators and students.
