Hye Pae, PhD, Assistant Professor, Literacy and Second Language Studies

Hye K. Pae, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Psycholinguistics and Applied Linguistics in the TESL/Literacy Graduate Program. She received her doctorate from Georgia State University (GSU) in 2001. Prior to joining the faculty at UC, she was a research associate in the Department of Psychology and adjunct faculty in the Department of Applied Linguistics at GSU. As her credentials cross interdisciplinary boundaries, she taught second-language reading at GSU as well as English and Communication at Georgia Perimeter College for eight years. Her interests lie in second-language acquisition, bilingualism, psycholinguistics, prevention of and intervention for reading difficulties, assessment challenges across cultures, and reading disabilities in children and adult learners. She is particularly interested in psychometric properties of measurement tools, L1 effects on L2 reading acquisition, L1 attrition, and dual-language processing. She has been involved in several research projects with her colleagues, Drs. Robin Morris, Rose Sevcik, and Daphne Greenberg, at GSU, funded by the federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Education, the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development, and Institute of Education Sciences. She has published research articles in the SSCI journals, such as Assessment, Annals of Dyslexia, Journal of Research in Reading, and Learning Disabilities Research and Practices. Her research in bilingualism and biliteracy has been expanded with collaborative work in Korea. She serves as Faculty Director for the TESOL Endorsement program.
