Yuva obtained her Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering (SSNCE), India. She is interested in studying the cognitive basis behind language reading and listening using neuroimaging modalities such as Electroencephalogram (EEG), Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), and Magnetic resonance Imaging (fMRI). Her masteral dissertation utilized EEG technique to understand bilinguals’ artificial grammar learning abilities.
Currently, she is a Research Associate at CRADLE and supports variety of projects based on the neuroimaging studies. She also aims to understand the brain connectivity patterns in language learning using EEG.
Research Interests in Science of Learning and Education
Applications of Biomedical and Neuroimaging modalities in understanding the cognitive basis of reading and listening.
1) Effective Biliteracy: The impact of script sets on bilingual reading networks for typical and atypical readers
2) Effect of Neuromodulation on Repetition priming.
