I’m a linguist, but not the “speaks eight languages fluently” type. At the moment I’m studying for a PhD in psycholinguistics, which means looking at how humans produce and understand language in real time. My particular interest is in the processing of grammatical and structural relationships in sentences. Previously I spent six years in the publishing industry, editing and managing textbooks in psychiatry, nursing and surgery. In 2008 I returned to student life to do a Masters at the University of Essex, where I also started my PhD.
I’m currently based at the Potsdam Research Institute for Multilingualism. Outside linguistics my interests include singing, crochet, baking, and wishing I had a dog.
