Henny Yeung

Assistant Professor


  • Ph.D., Developmental Psychology, University of British Columbia


Dr. Yeung’s research asks how language learning affects sensory perception, articulatory-motor abilities, and human cognition, both in infants and young children acquiring their native language(s), as well as in adults learning a new language. His Ph.D. dissertation focused on the development of speech perception and production from infancy to adulthood, and he has also investigated first and second language acquisition as a research scientist at the Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception, part of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the UniversitĂ© Paris Descartes. He is director of the Language Learning and Development Lab (the LangDev Lab) at SFU.
