Dr Aman Key Yekani, Hajar

    I am Hajar Aman Key Yekani, I am a laboratory assistant and part-time lecturer on the Dubai campus.  I hold a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Shiraz University in Iran.

    Before joining Heriot Watt I worked as a Research Associate with the Cognition and Neuroscience Research Laboratory team at Zayed University for four years. Our two main areas of research included Social Cognition, particularly when it involves perception of faces; and experimental research on reading, using sophisticated eye-tracking equipment, concentrating on reading with filtered fovea, investigating spatial frequencies in reading, transposed letter effects in Persian and Arabic and the effect of space manipulation on reading speed and sentence comprehension in the Persian language.
