Dr. Emily Ge is currently Research Assistant Professor in the School of Education and Languages, the Open University of Hong Kong. She received her M.Phil and Ph.D. in Linguistics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research focuses on language acquisition and real-time processing in bilingual children, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and adult second language learners, through psycholinguistic (e.g., eye-tracking) and corpus linguistic methods.
