Research Interests

Reading is my main interest. I mainly looked into the effect of teacher professional development on student literacy. I hope to look more into activity in the brain and reading acquisition. I am also interested in Tier 3 Response to Intervention and its effect on students’ reading, mainly phonemic awareness.

Keywords: Reading disabilities, reading intervention, reading acquisition, reading development, brain functioning
