I am a researcher in psycholinguistics. My research focusses on lexical representation and morphological processing in native and non-native speakers.
The theoretical background for my work concerns the debate between symbolic and associative models of linguistic representation, as well as the role of maturational factors in language acquisition.

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