I am a PhD student at the University of Potsdam and my research interests include linguistic development of young infants, phonemic awareness, and neural activity during language processing. In Crossing the Border, I work on Project Z: The Interplay of Language, Cognition, and the Brain in early Human Development. This project focuses on the relationship between basic information processing abilities in infancy as well as toddlerhood and competencies in nonlinguistic, linguistic, and social-cognitive domains at later stages of life. As there are no established assessments, It aims to develop a battery of tasks that allows us to measure 6- to 36-month-old infants‘: a) Recognition memory, b) Attention, c) Processing speed and d) Executive function. My main duty in the group will be data management and data analysis.
