Research

My research interests pertain to the processing of written words and how information is stored and represented within the semantic system. I am also interested in the the interplay between these processes and other domains in human cognition, such as perception, action, and reasoning. These topics are investigated by combining experimental techniques (reaction times, analysis of eye-movements in reading, explicit judgments) with computational approaches (learning models, vector space models).

 

Research areas:

  • Computational modelling in psycholinguistics
  • Representation and learning in distributed models (distributional semantics in particular)
  • Semantic, morphological, and orthographic effects in word recognition
  • Contextual effects in reading
