I am a lecturer in the School of Psychology and affiliated with the Centre for Human Brain Health at the University of Birmingham. My research focuses on the neurobiology of language processing, with a special focus on how sentence-level processes and interactive communication are supported by the brain. I also study how the neurobiological infrastructure of language processing changes throughout the lifespan and I research lifestyle factors (such as regular physical exercise) that can mitigate language decline.


Before taking up a position in Birmingham, I was a staff researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Netherlands. I received my PhD from the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and my Msc and Bsc in Psychology from the University of Leuven, Belgium.
