I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the CDC since December 2012. My PhD Thesis is about the neural correlates of metaphor comprehension, specifically the role of the right hemisphere in processing semantic distance and figurativeness. During my PhD I spent an academic year at the Freie Universität Berlin with Professor Arthur M. Jacobs working on an fMRI experiment, and six months at UCSD with Professor Marta Kutas learning to measure ERPs. For my Postdoc at CEU I switched gears to learn behavioral and neuroscience experimental methods of infant research. Currently I am studying contingency perception and early speech comprehension. On the long run I would like to merge my two main research interests, and study the development of experimental pragmatics, from the perspective of neuroscience.
