I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Dutch Studies of the University of Oldenburg and the cluster of excellence Hearing4all, in close cooperation with the labs of Biological Psychology and Applied Neurocognitive Psychology. My project is titled "The effects of hearing impairment on grammatical processing and comprehension and its neurological underpinnings". In Oldenburg I am working with prof. dr. Esther Ruigendijk, prof. dr. Christiane Thiel, and prof. dr. Jochem Rieger.

I got my PhD from the University of Groningen (RUG). My dissertation is titled "Reference and Cognition: Experimental and computational cognitive modeling studies on reference processing in Dutch and Italian". This research was carried out within the Semantics and Cognition Group of the Center for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG) and the Department of Psychology at the University of Groningen. At the Department of Psychology I was a member of the Cognitive Modeling group. I was also affiliated with the Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences Groningen (BCN). My supervisors were prof. dr. Petra Hendriks and prof. dr. Hedderik van Rijn.

Part of my PhD research was carried out in cooperation with the research group of prof. dr. Maria Teresa Guasti at the University of Milan - Bicocca.
