I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie research fellow at Maastricht University investigating the cross-domain influence of musical rhythmic training on rhythm perception in language comprehension. I am working with professor Sonja Kotz in the BAND-LAB. My training is in linguistics, computational linguistics and the neurobiology of language. I am fascinated by the brain, language, music, dance, rhythm.

I recently presented my work at the bi-annual meeting of the Hellenic Society for Neuroscience 2019.
