Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge.

I got my PhD from the University of Groningen (RUG) in 2017. My dissertation is titled Reference and Cognition: Experimental and computational cognitive modeling studies on reference processing in Dutch and Italian. From 2017-2019, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Dutch studies at the University of Oldenburg (UOL).

Research

My research combines psycholinguistic, statistical, and cognitive modeling methods to investigate different aspects of language processing. Specifically, I work on syntactic and semantic processing throughout the lifespan. My research entails both written and spoken language processing, both offline (comprehension) and online (eye-tracking, fMRI). Additionally, I am interested in the influences of cognitive abilities on language processing.

My research interests include, but are not limited to, psycholinguistics, language processing, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, cognitive science, (cognitive) neuroscience, cognitive modeling, language acquisition, aging, pronoun processing, cross-linguistic comparisons, and individual differences.
