As a psycholinguist, who takes an experimental approach in linguistics to study how language is “done” in the mind, I am primarily investigating (1) how complex words are represented/processed in the mind, (2) how bilinguals read in one language with two languages in the mind, and (3) how language affects thought. In short, I am interested in the mechanisms by which complex things are processed effortlessly and efficiently, which often happen at a subconscious level. Phenomena consistently observed across different languages, populations, and tasks must surely reflect the core of human language processes. By tracking such functional overlaps, the overarching goal of my research is an understanding of what language is within the little universe in our mind and … what makes humans human. Aside from these linguistic issues, I devote a significant amount of my time to the fundamental issues of life and death, how humans should be, and what I am, in order to make my (and our) life more pleasant.
