I’m a linguistics master’s student and research assistant at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany. My reseach interest lies in Psycho and Neurolinguistics in which I wrote my Bachelor’s thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr Katharina Spalek and Univ-Prof. Dr Dr Peter Indefrey. In the master I’m laying my focus on language impairment and language modeling.
