Research Summary


I am a doctoral student in Experimental Psychology working under the joint supervision of Dr. Kate Watkins and Prof. Dorothy Bishop.

I received my MSc in Psychology (Cognitive Neuroscience) from the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, where I examined the neural correlates of speech production and speech perception analysing electroencephalograms (EEG) of functional illiterates

My current research project focuses on language comprehension and production abilities of children with specific language impairments (SLI). I’m particularly interested in neural mechanisms and brain structures underlying atypical language development. Using both magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and stimulation techniques (tDCS) in volunteers with and without SLI, I hope to discover more about the neural bases of language deficits.
