Gloria Mona Knospe


I studied Psychology at the Philipps University of Marburg, with a specialization on Cognitive Neuroscience. During my one-year study abroad at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA (USA) I first got interested in Psycholinguistics. I wrote my diploma thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (Netherlands), where I studied word recognition in Dutch-English bilinguals. In October 2012, I started my PhD studies at PRIM, where I focus on the processing of pronouns and reflexives in Turkish-German bilinguals.

Research Interests

  • bilingual language processing, specifically in Turkish-German bilinguals
  • processing of pronouns and reflexives
