I am a postdoctoral researcher currently working on the role of negated meanings in predictive language processing.

My main research area concerns how meaning is modulated and processed. More specifically, I am interested in investigating negated meanings and the different factors that affect the processing of these meanings using experimental methodologies such as eye-tracking and EEG/ERPs.

In my PhD thesis, which I defended in 2019, I combined a number of methodologies and measures (artificial language learning and EEG/ERPs) to study the processing of two types of negation (with not and un) and identified a number of discursive factors affecting the processing of negation. The findings contributed to a dynamic view of meaning and language processing suggesting that the processing of negated meanings, is not only sensitive to the properties of individual words and expressions but is also modulated by contextual factors.

My profile in Lund University research portal

My main research interests involve exploring the dynamics of language processing using experimental methods such as eye tracking and EEG/ERP. More specifically, I am interested in investigating the processing cost associated with negated words and statements and to what extent various forms of negation contribute to this processing cost.
