I'm a PhD student within the Multimodal Language and Cognition Group at the Center for Language Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen under supervision of prof. dr. Asli Özyürek and dr. Susanne Brouwer. My project entitled "relations between spatial language and cognition in deaf signers, speakers, and bimodal bilinguals" aims to investigate the effect of iconicity on language use and visual attention in deaf signers and hearing bimodal bilinguals compared to non-signers. For this, I use eye-tracking and behavioural methods to study the cognitive underpinnings of this iconcity effect.

I got my BA in Linguistics in Leipzig, Germany and my MA in Linguistics at Radboud University. My MA thesis was on the topic of the link between cross-language activation and cognitive control in hearing bimodal bilinguals. After my graduation, I worked as a research assistant within the Neurobiology of Language Group at Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics.
