I am working as Research Assistant (PhD student) in Project 8, focusing on the interaction between Language and Theory of Mind acquisition during development with eye-tracking and EEG techniques. In particular, I am investigating early child competence in mental state verbs and knowledge formation via the analysis of looking behavior and neural correlates of action-prediction as indexes of ToM implicit understanding in false-belief tasks. My research interests encompass theoretical and applied linguistics (focusing on syntactic processing), early and late bilingualism, language and ToM acquisition.
