Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD student working in a project that investigates language processing and linguistic skills in young children with a familial risk for dyslexia. I will meet the participants when they are toddlers and study their language skills and processing both at the behavioral and neural (EEG) level. I also aim to study the development of language and its neural basis. Before joining this project I was working as a clinical speech and language therapist. I have a master’s degree in Logopedics.
