As a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Vera Demberg's group from January 1st, 2024, I am affiliated with the ERC-funded project "Individualized Interaction in Discourse".

I study incremental comprehension, often conducting reading time experiments on the timecourse of pragmatic inferences.
My particular interests include discourse coherence, quotation and perspective-dependence, sentence comprehension in understudied languages (like Santiago Laxopa Zapotec), and computational models for the rational timing of comprehension decisions.
