Research Interests

I am interested in the investigation of the neurocognitive properties of written and spoken language. I employ behavioural and neuroimaging methods (fMRI, MEG) to study the functional links between language and action, word meaning representation and the processing of morphological complexity from a cross-linguistic perspective.
