The main area of my research is language processing in the adult healthy and impaired brain. Specifically, I have been focused on linguistic deficits in aphasia and schizophrenia. Additionally, I also carry out experiments, examining cross-linguistic differences in language processing. The methods I use in my research include purely behavioural experiments, as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation and fMRI. I have strong programming and data analysis skills in R and Python. I am a strong supporter of open science and thus I make my data and analysis scripts available as much as possible.

Selected courses I have taught:

  • Social Cognition
  • Statistics (linear (mixed) effects models, generalized (mixed) effects models)
