Personal Statement

My research aims to shed light on the mechanisms engaged in language processing, and how these mechanisms arise during development. I investigate this line of research using neuroimaging techniques adapted for infants research as EEG and fNIRS.

The main research questions I address in my work is:

how does the human brain specifically interact with a particular language to shape the language processing system of each listeners/speakers?

To answer this question, I focus on the following research areas:

-Investigation of the origins of syntactic processing in development
-Understanding the role of prediction in online language processing
-Identification the cognitive bias of newborns when processing linguistic input

I am currently accepting / would be please to hear from PhD students
