About me


I am currently working as a post-doc in the Leiden Centre for Research in Linguistics and the Leiden Centre for Brain and Cognition. Along with being a bit of a psychology/brain geek, I love to act, sing dance and being on stage as well as kayaking and rock-climbing. I also like to take pictures when I’m not too busy.


My research interests range over the following areas: psycholinguistics • neurolinguistics • bilingualism • language acquisition • semantics • philosophy of language. I am particularly interested with how and the extent to which language relates with other cognitive mechanisms and issues such as the relation between language and thought; what thought is made of; the extent to which language is innate; where and how language is represented in the minds of monolinguals and bilinguals. You can find out more on my research page.
