Yi Ting Huang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences. She received her PH.D. in Developmental Psychology from Harvard University and trained as a post-doctoral fellow in Cognitive Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Huang's research sits at the intersection of language processing and language acquisition, and explores how children's real-time comprehension strategies shape their language learning and outcomes. To explore these questions, she recruits eye-tracking paradigms that isolate moment-to-moment processing changes and links them to the year-to-year transformations that occur during development. Dr. Huang has broad expertise in cognitive development, language acquisition, and adult psycholinguistics. She has strong interests in undersanding the commonalities and variations that emerge in listeners from diverse backgrounds (e.g., cross-linguistic effects, SES differences, Qur'an memorizers, second language acquisition). Recent collaborations have allowed her to expand into listeners with cochlear implants, and tackle key questions such as how signla degradation impacts comprehension strategies in listeners with cochlear implants, how these strategies vary in pre- versus post-lingually deafened individuals, and how degraded signals are used by children for communication and learning.
