I am currently a PhD student at Shravan Vasishth's lab
at the University of Potsdam. I am interested in the underlying mechanisms of human sentence processing.
In my previous project I investigated an illusion of grammaticality, the so-called “missing-VP effect” phenomenon,
My current work focusses on replicability in psycholinguistic research.
