I am a psycholinguist, working as an assistant professor at the department of Language and Communication at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the field of nonverbal communication. I am specifically interested in the way in which various nonverbal aspects of communication, such as gestures, prosody, gaze and facial expressions, work together with speech to create a coherent multimodal communicative message. I am also interested in the role that nonverbal aspects of communication, such as gesture, play in (second) language acquisition and bilingualism, and in the question what gesture production can tell us about how we conceptualise the world around us.
What I like best in academia is that there are always new things to learn and do, and new people to meet. So feel free to contact me when you have any questions or comments about my research, or if you are interested in collaboration!
