I am a researcher in psycholinguistics.
My research interests include lexical representation and morphological processing in native and non-native speakers.
The theoretical questions that form the background for my work concern the debate between symbolic and associative models of language and cognition.

I work as a postdoctoral researcher at the
Potsdam Research Institute for Multilingualism of the University of Potsdam, Germany.
