Kelvin obtained his Ph.D. in Psychology from the Department of Psychology of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research focuses on executive function and early language development. He has examined both behavioral performances and underlying neural mechanisms using high temporal-resolution electroencephalography (EEG) among children and adults.

  • Behavioral and neural development of reading and writing
