His computational psycholinguistics research focuses on understanding how people read, how words influence their thoughts and emotions, and how reading alters the brain through eye-tracking. His qualitative findings are used to incorporate human behavior into Natural Language Computational Algorithms (like Large Language Models) that analyze human-generated text data.
