Research overview

I do corpus analyses and experimental studies to investigate how children's comprehension and productive use of specific (complex) linguistic structures is guided by the form and function of these and related structures in their input. I see language acquisition as a general learning process and have recently looked at interactions between linguistic and social-cognitive development.

PhD supervision

I would be happy to receive applications in any of these areas: first language acquisition (especially formal and functional aspects of syntax), sentence processing, language and Theory of Mind development, cognitive/ usage-based linguistics & construction grammar.

Research Interests

Language acquisition and processing

Language and Theory of Mind development
