Research Assistant


Biography:

I am a Research Assistant working with Prof. Usha Goswami and her team on the BabyRhythm project, a longitudinal study (2 months to 2.5 years) that uses EEG, eyetracking, motion capture, and a variety of language measures to investigate the link between rhythmic entrainment and language acquisition. I have a MA in Linguistics with a specialisation in Psycholinguistics, a MSc in Literature, and a BA in English Language and Literature. Before joining the BabyRhythm project, I undertook linguistic research at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge as well as at the Department of English and American Studies at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I have worked on several projects using behavioural methods to tap into the cognitive processes of bilingual language acquisition and its cognitive advantages. Most interestingly, I have been able to design and pilot my own experimental games incorporating video stimuli and children’s toys and I have been fortunate to collaborate with schools and language specialists in England, Germany, and Greece.
