Young investigators

Koji Miwa 三輪晃司

Dr. Koji Miwa is an experimental psycholinguist, who is intereseted in investigating how complex words are represented or processed in the mind, how bilinguals read in one language with two languages in the mind, and how language affects thought. In other words, he is most interested in how these topics are processed, at an often subconscious level.

He obtained a BA and subsequently PhD in Linguistics at the University of Alberta, Canada in 2013. After his postdoc at the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, he became Associate Professor at Nagoya University in 2017.


Yiu Kei Tsang

Dr. Yiu Kei Tsang is a psycholinguist based at Hong Kong Baptist University. He is interested in Chinese language processing, as well as language education. He recently conducted studies on the processing of radicals in Chinese characters.

He obtained a BSSc at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and subsequently a PhD at the same institution. Since 2012, he has been Assistant Professor at the Department of Education Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University.


Chenhao Chiu 邱振豪

Dr. Chenhao Chiu is assistant professor at the Graduate Institute of Linguistics (GIL), National Taiwan University (NTU). His research interests include acoustic and articulatory phonetics, the interaction between speech perception and production, speech motor control, and laboratory phonology. Topics mainly cover speech motor behaviours as to derived linguistic implication, using different experimental techniques, including electroglottography (EGG), electromyography (EMG), ultrasound imaging, and 3D computational modelling (Artisynth).

He obtained a BA at National Chengchi University (Taiwan), a MA in Linguistics at National Chung Cheng University (Taiwan), and subsequently a PhD in Linguistics at the University of British Columbia, Canada in 2015. Since 2016, he has joined the GIL at NTU.


Chia-Lin Lee 李佳霖

Dr. Lee is an experimental neurolinguist who is interested in the cognitive mechanisms associated with meaning processing in the brain, e.g. the effective retrieval and weighing of relevant information associated with a concept for a given situation, which she believes to be the key to efficaciously interpreting what is happening around us, and which in many ways affects how we respond to it. Most research focuses on how linguistic, perceptual, and motor information contribute to meaning processing. In addition, she and her lab examine how these processes change across the life span in the face of accumulated experience and neurobiological constraints associated with aging.

She obtained her BA in English at National Taiwan Normal University, followed by a MA in Linguistics at the same institution. Subsequently, she went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for a MA and a PhD in Psychology (2010). From 2012-2017 she was Assistant Professor at the Graduate Institute of Linguistics at National Taiwan University, where she now is an Associate Professor.
