Biography

I make use of immersive virtual reality (VR) technologies to study human linguistic and communicative capacities in rich audiovisual contexts. An important advantage of VR as a scientific method is that it allows studying language and communication in ecologically valid settings while maintaining experimental control. Specifically, I apply VR in combination with motion tracking, eye tracking, and electroencephalography (EEG) to learn more about the neurobiological underpinnings of language and communication in domains such as neuropragmatics, multimodal and non-verbal communication, and multilingualism. My work is funded by an NWO Veni grant
