I did my PhD at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain (Germany). After research stays at the University of Western Ontario (Canada), Stanford University (USA) and Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), I started as principal investigator and tenure track professor at the University of Potsdam. I try to better understand how language processing works in the brain, using neuroscientific evidence and computational modelling (see Overview and Publications).

My research interest lies in investigating the role of probabilistic representations and prediction in perception and cognition. I did my PhD in applied mathematics at the Technical University of Denmark, in which I investigated analogies between brain activity and Bayesian models of multisensory perception. In my postdoc project, I investigate the role of probabilistic representations in language comprehension using deep learning and EEG.

I have obtained my Ph.D. from the Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands) as part of the Language in Interaction consortium. My research interests focus on applying computational linguistic models to the study of language processing in the brain. I am particularly interested in stochastic language models (both bayesian and neural-based), vector space semantic models, and syntactic parsing. My current work aims to develop and train a connectionist model of sentence comprehension and to use it to investigate how the human brain computes event representations during naturalistic sentence comprehension.

I completed my MSc in Language Sciences at UCL (UK) in 2018. Following that, I spent a year working as an intern at MPI for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen. I joined the Cognitive Neuroscience lab as a PhD student in December 2019 to work on a project investigating the intricacies of the N400's functional significance.

I obtained both my B.Sc and M.Sc. in Psychology (Kassel/Halle-Wittenberg/Leipzig). I now joined the Cognitive Neuroscience lab in 2020 as a PhD student. For my project I am planning to use EEG and pharmacology to investigate the relation between prediction errors, adaptation/learning, and their neuromodulation during language comprehension.

I am a third year student in Psychology at the Universität Potsdam. My study interest primarily lies in the field of biopsychology and cognitive neuroscience. I am also into interdisciplinary approaches, combining biological and computational perspectives.

After I completed my BA in psychology (2017), I started my M.Sc. in the Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience program at Freie University Berlin. Currently, I am working on my M.Sc. thesis which investigates implicit learning during sentence reading by looking at the N400 ERP component.
