Research profile

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). In my PhD, supervised by Michael Franke and Manfred Krifka, I’m investigating pragmatic prediction in online language processing, particularly with regard to epistemicity cues.

I’m broadly interested in the interplay between language, cognition, and interaction. I’m particularly interested in the different communicative strategies people use to understand one another in context. In my research I use primarily experimental methods to try and explore how pragmatic pressures shape the usage and organization of human language, e.g.:

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