About my research:
I use eye tracking to examine higher order cognitive functions: e.g., text comprehension and viewing of visual scenes. In my current three-year research project (2017-2019) at TIAS I am investigating the role of emotions in text comprehension. I am interested in different types of texts: expository and literary texts as well as news stories. My favorite research methodology is eye tracking, as it opens up a “window into the soul” of the reader.
