My research mainly focuses on the neural underpinnings of individual variability in language performance and forms part of the Language in Interaction project. The main questions I am trying to answer are: What are the individual differences in brain morphology and how do these differences relate to variation in language skills? How do language task-induced brain activation and functional network architecture vary in individuals? Specifically, I am using a multiscale approach, including task fMRI, resting state fMRI, structural MRI and DTI, to measure individual differences in task-based brain activation and connectivity patterns, the resting-state functional network, white-matter integrity, grey-matter structure and density, as well as cortical thickness and areal expansion, and to map such functional and structural variation to language performance variation.
