I am a second-year PhD student in the Digital Linguistics group, supervised by Prof. Dr. Lena A. Jäger and Prof. Dr. Rico Sennrich. I obtained my Master's degree at UZH in Linguistics with a focus on Digital Linguistics, where I wrote my MA Thesis on predicting human attention from eye movements with neural sequence models.

I am currently working on the investigation and the enhancement of the cognitive plausibility of language models.
