About me

I’m a research assistant and PhD candidate in Cognitive Sciences in the Vasishth’s Lab, at the University of Potsdam, in Germany. I am currently working on computational models of sentence processing difficulties in aphasia, within the project B02 of the SFB 1287 - Limits of Variability in Language. For this purpose, I mostly use Bayesian methods, as well as the cognitive architecture ACT-R.

Previously, I completed a MA in English Linguistics at Paris Diderot University (CLILLAC-ARP EA 3967 lab), and I was a visiting student at NYU Linguistics for the academic year 2017-2018. During this period, my research mainly focused on lexical and syntactic complexity in learner English, and on crosslinguistic transferences in multilingual learners. I also worked on the statistical modeling of relativizer choices among French learners of English (under the supervision of Nicolas Ballier and Detmar Meurers). Prior to that, I completed a BA on English & French Philology at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in Spain. You can download my CV from here.
