I am a PhD student in general linguistics with a focus on neurolinguistics. In my PhD project, I investigate early stages in the acquistion of tone languages. Using behavioural and ERP data, I analyse how beginner learners of natural and artificial tone languages process tone and what neural changes occur during initial acquisition. In this context, I also examine the role of phonological transfer.

Focusing mainly on sociolinguisitcs, language change and linguistic variation, I received a Bachelor's degree in general linguistics from Paderborn University, Germany. During my Master's degree at Lund University, Sweden, I was introduced to neurolinguistics and my interest was piqued. This resulted in a Master's thesis examining the processing of differently strong grammaticalised English words. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a research assistent at Lund University, where I gained ample experience in the recording and analysis of ERP data.
