I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the WORDS project in the Language and Brain Laboratory here at Oxford.
Within the project, I am mainly responsible for the work on English and German as well as the design, execution and analysis of neurolinguistic and behavioural experiments.
Another area of research I am currently involved in is bilingual lexical representation and processing, with a particular focus on the differences between simultaneous and sequential adult bilinguals.
Current & future research areas:
- Phonological aspects of speech processing and lexical representation (WORDS project)
- Work on differences in degree of integration and control in the mental lexicon of early and late bilinguals using behavioural and EEG methodology
- Psycholinguistic exploration of derivational morphological processes based on my doctoral work on antonymy
