My research focuses on the interface between cognitive development and language impairment. My current research is working on the feasibility and efficacy of a computer-based intervention aimed at monolingual and bilingual children with poor reading comprehension ability. The end goal is to enhance the quality of life for children with language and reading problems.
Rosa graduated from Indiana University with a BA in General Studies, and went on to complete an MSc in Reading, Language, and Cognition and Ph.D. in Psychology at University of York. Her PhD work (under the supervision of Prof. Andy Ellis) has shown that young dyslexic adults have problems both in pronouncing and learning new written words. During her first post-doctoral position, in collaboration with The University of Oxford, Bangor, Birmingham, Kent and Liverpool, Rosa was involved in building and managing the largest database of bilingual toddlers (UKBT) in the UK. This project investigates the factors affecting bilingual vocabulary development across 12 target languages (including Bengali, Cantonese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hindi/Urdu, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, and Welsh) as a precursor to the design of a universal bilingual assessment tool. Dr. Caroline Floccia and Rosa are currently utilizing the result of the database to build an assessment tool that can help to identify whether a particular bilingual child has the potential to have language delay at age 2.Since March 2015, she have worked in the area of literacy development as a research associate at Coventry University.
