Mante Nieuwland

I completed my BA, MA and PhD Cum Laude degrees in Psychology all from the University of Amsterdam. My PhD project on semantic and referential aspects of discourse comprehension was supervised by Jos van Berkum. I've subsequently worked as a Rubicon post-doctoral researcher at Tufts University with Gina Kuperberg (2007-2009), as a staff scientist at the Basque Center for Cognition, Brain and Language (2010-2012) and as a Chancellor's Fellow/Tenured Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh (2012-2016). I currently serve on the editorial board of Journal of Memory and Language and of Cognition.

I am particularly interested in how the brain achieves high-level aspects of language processing, such as pragmatic and referential meaning, and in the role of incrementality and prediction in language comprehension.
