Personal profile

Research interests

Reading comprehension is a crucial skill at nearly all levels of education. At the same time, reading comprehension is a skill that many children, adolescents, and even adults struggle with. I am interested in the cognitive processes and mechanisms that contribute to reading comprehension and in how these differ across and, over time, within individuals. I am also interested in the question of how reading comprehension may be facilitated, for instance by text design, pictorial illustrations, or teaching of specific reading strategies.
