My research focuses on infant language acquisition.
Currently, I focus on the role of social cues on word learning. Using techniques like gaze-contingent eye-tracking, I try to disentangle the role of different social cues (like contingency or reference).

How do language-general abilities and language-specific experience interact over the course of development?
This is a topic I have investigated in my PhD thesis (part of which I've also tried to dance.)

I am also interested in cumulating available data in a usable way, and am part of the Metalab project, a database of meta-analyses of infant language acquisition. In the context of improving scientific practices, I took part in #barbarplots, a campaign raising awareness for more appropriate data visualization.

Finally, I am writing for CogTales, a blog on research(er life) from the perspective of young female cognitive scientists.
