I am a second-year PhD student at the Digital Linguistics Lab, supervised by Prof. Dr. Lena A. Jäger and Prof. Dr. Rico Sennrich. I obtained my Master's degree in Neural Systems and Computation from the ETH and University of Zurich, writing my Thesis at the Developmental Neuroimaging group which is part of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. My Bachelor's degree I did in Comparative Linguistics and Neuroinformatics at the University of Zurich.


Currently, I am working on integrating models of eye-movements and language. Generally, I am interested in Computational Psycholinguistics, Cognitive Linguistics and General Linguistics.
