I am a 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 (Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry). Before, I did a Bachelor's in Comparative Linguistics (Indo-European Linguistics and General Linguistics) and Neuroinformatics at the University of Zurich.

Currently, I am working on integrating models of eye-movements and language, language model interpretability, and the assessment of test-retest reliability in psycholinguistics.
