Research interests: psycho-/neurolinguistics, first language acquisition, discourse processing, mental representation, modality and counterfactuality
My main research interests lie in neurolinguistics and first language acquisition. I use a variety of experimental methods to research the processing and comprehension of abstract language, including neural measures (EEG/MEG), eye tracking and other behavioral experiments. Specifically, my research focuses on how we process, acquire, and represent language that describes situations displaced from the here-and-now, such as modal expressions (maybe it’s a hamster) and counterfactual expressions (if only dodos hadn’t gone extinct).
