Background and activities

I am principal investigator and senior manager at the Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab at NTNU. My research addresses computational and neural aspects of human language processing, learning and evolution, with a focus on semantics.

I am author of the books Meaning in the Brain (The MIT Press 2018) and Neurolinguistics (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series 2022) and editor of the theme issue Towards mechanistic models of meaning composition (Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B 2020).

I teach in the courses Language and Cognition (SPRÅK3300) and Introduction to Neuroscience (NEVR2010).

Some of my talks and lectures are available on YouTube.
