This page contains some information about me. It also hosts papers, posters (PDFs with DOI on figshare.com), talks (some with links to slides), an overview of upcoming and past events I attend (and sometimes even host), and some project descriptions on completed and ongoing work.
My main research focus is on early first language acquisition, because it continues to puzzle me how babies become proficient speakers of their native language. I attack this topic from an experimental, a computational, and a meta-analytic side.
I am currently working on the VIOLA project, supported by a postdoctoral Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship. I carry out my work at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (LSCP) which is part of Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. I work with Alejandrina Cristia and her team (including collaborator Sho Tsuji) as well as Emmanuel Dupoux and his Bootphon Team.
In 2014, I completed my PhD on computational models of early language acquisition and the role of different voices at Radboud University Nijmegen and the International Max Planck Research School for Language Sciences, The Netherlands. My supervisors were Prof. Paula Fikkert, Prof. Lou Boves, and Dr. Louis ten Bosch.
Please do get in touch, I will try to answer quickly but it is possible I am currently attending or even organising yet another conference or workshop or am busy doing science.
