Description:

Keiko KODA (Ph.D., University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) is a professor of Japanese and Second Language Acquisition at the Department of Modern Languages, Carnegie Mellon University. Her primary research interest focuses on the development of second language
reading competence. She pursues systematic investigations of phenomena influencing second language lexical processing and text comprehension. Her secondary interest lies in clarifying cross-linguistic variations in reading acquisition and their relation to second language reading development. Currently, she is also involved in pedagogical studies that examine the effectiveness of instructional interventions that are designed to exploit previously acquired reading and learning skills, as cross-linguistically sharable resources, in adult foreign language learners.
