Biography


I am Postdoctoral Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. My research focuses on computational modelling of language learning, on topics that range from auditory and visual statistical learning to structure learning, sentence processing and language development. I am currently working with Caroline Rowland and Evan Kidd on modelling word learning.

Previously, I worked at the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language. Together with Ram Frost and Blair Armstrong, we investigated the effects of entropy on visual word recognition.

I did my PhD at the Institute of Logic, Language and Computation, at the University of Amsterdam, where I worked with Jelle Zuidema, Carel Ten Cate and Remko Scha on Computational Modelling of Artificial Language Learning.
