Dr Chuanli Zang

Research Associate
School of Psychology and Computer Science

Dr Chuanli Zang works in School of Psychology and Computer Science at the University of Central Lancashire with Professor Simon Liversedge on a grant supported by Economic & Social Research Council.

Chuanli is interested in eye movements during reading, and in particular investigating how readers foveally and parafoveally process words and Multi-Constituent Units during natural Chinese reading. Her interests include word segmentation, saccade targeting and parafoveal processing in reading. Recently she has developed an interest in the use of co-registration methodology (i.e., eye movements and Fixation-Related Potentials) to investigate the processes that underlie reading.

Chuanli started her academic career at the Academy of Psychology and Behavior, Tianjin Normal University, China where she received her PhD in Psychology (2010). During her studies, she received a China Scholarship Council (CSC) grant to allow her to work with Professor Liversedge in the School of Psychology and Computer Science , University of Southampton for a year (2009-2010). Since then she has been a Visiting Academic at the University of Southampton. After her PhD, she started her position at Tianjin Normal University as a lecturer (2010) and later became an Associate Professor (2013). From 2016 to 2017, she obtained a CSC grant to support a collaborative research visit to the University of Southampton.
