Dr Hazel Blythe is a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Southampton.

I did my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of York, before moving to Durham University for my MA in Research Methods (Developmental Psychology). I completed my PhD at the University of Southampton under the supervision of Professor Simon Liversedge, examining children's eye movements during reading. I have worked on a number of projects as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in collaboration with Professor Simon Liversedge (Psychology, Southampton), Professor Colin Kennedy (Medicine, Southampton), Professor Nick Donnelly (Psychology, Southampton), and Professor Nick Holliman (University of York), with funding from the Leverhulme Trust, the MRC, the ESRC, and the Wellcome Trust.

Research interests

My research interests are primarily in language and literacy development in children. In my research, I measure children’s eye movements as they are reading, in order to study how their reading develops with both age and their broader cognitive development. I am also interested in children’s cognitive development more generally, particularly in the field of visual cognition. I am currently involved with projects in the following areas: reading skills in teenagers with Permanent Childhood Hearing Impairment (PCHI) and in teenagers with dyslexia; typically developing children’s reading, binocular coordination during reading, and adults’ processing of negation during reading.
