Ph.D. Candidate in Psycholinguistics at Saarland University.

About

Bio

I am a doctoral researcher in psycholinguistics in the special research group Information density and linguistic encoding at the Department of Language Science and Technology, Saarland University, Germany. I research human language comprehension in the neural and behavioural domain using experimental and computational methods. My dissertation project is supervised by Matthew Crocker and Harm Brouwer
