Research Interests

My interest lies in the relation between cognition and language, i.e. how cognitive processes reflect linguistic structure and vice versa. As part of the ProGram project, my research uses psycho- and neurolinguistic methods (e.g. reaction time studies and fMRI) to explore processing differences between grammar and lexicon.
