Research

My research interests include language comprehension, computational modelling in cognitive science,
multilingualism, computational linguistics, embodied cognition, philosophy of mind, and any combination of these.

Current projects
As a senior researcher in the Language in Interaction consortium, I coordinate the Big Question project How to bridge neurobiology and psycholinguistic theory by computational modelling?
I also study the effects of word predictability and semantic association on brain activity and reading times, with a special focus on second-language and non-native reading; and try to understand how structural differences between languages affect comprehension processes.

PhD students
Chara Tsoukala: modelling bilingual sentence production
Danny Merkx: semantic vector representations as a model of the mental lexicon
Jinbiao Yang: the mechanism of language chuncking - experimental and modelling approaches

I also co-supervise Alessandro Lopopolo, Ingeborg Roete, and Theresa Redl
