Profile picture

I’m a doctoral researcher in the Cognitive Modeling group at the Institute of Cognitive Science, Osnabrück University, and in the Semantics and Pragmatics group at the Leibniz-Centre General Linguistics (ZAS).

I’m also interested in issues related to research design and methodology and data analysis.
