Background and activities

Background

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Language and Literature. I have a MA in Latin Linguistics (University of Amsterdam) and a MA in English Linguistics and Language acquitision (NTNU). I am part of the AcqVA research group group and of the Øyelab. My advisors are Dave Kush and Andrew Weir.

Research interests

My research centers around the processing of long-distance dependencies. In my PhD project, I investigate the processing of anaphora. More specifically, I am interested in the role of prediction/active parsing when establishing long-distance dependencies during incremental processing. My experiments research the nature of active parsing mechanisms, and the influence of syntactic and non-syntactic factors on active parsing mechanisms.

I use different psycholinguistic methods, among which eye-tracking while reading and self-paced reading.
