Usha Goswami University of Cambridge
Usha Goswami is Professor of Cognitive Developmental Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge. She is also Director of the University's Centre for Neuroscience in Education, which uses EEG techniques to study the neural basis of dyslexia and dyscalculia. Usha Goswami is currently funded by the Medical Research Council to carry out a longitudinal investigation of the brain basis of dyslexia in children. This is a 10-year study involving over 100 children. Prior to moving to Cambridge, she was Professor of Cognitive Developmental Psychology at the Institute of Child Health, University College London 1997 - 2003, and before that she was a University Lecturer in Experimental Psychology at the University of Cambridge, 1990-1997. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Oxford in 1987, her topic was reading and spelling by analogy. Her current research examines relations between phonology and reading, with special reference to the neural underpinnings of rhyme and rhythm in children's reading. She has received a number of career awards, including the British Psychology Society Spearman Medal and President's Award, the Norman Geschwind-Rodin Prize for Dyslexia research, and Fellowships from the National Academy of Education (USA), the Leverhulme Trust (UK) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany).
