PhD Project

My project Effects of enacted communication on meaning: Co-speech gestures and non-verbal signaling is part of the broader Research Training Group on Situated Cognition. I investigate how co-speech gestures influence language processing using EEG (electroencephalography).


Current Lab Projects

I am currently conducting EEG experiments, further info about our lab and other ongoing research can be found here:
