I am a post doc researcher at the Department of Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology in the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience of Maastricht University. I am investigating the cross-domain influence of musical rhythmic training on rhythm perception in language comprehension. My advisors are professor Sonja Kotz of the BAND-LAB and professor Alexander Sack of the Brain Stimulation and Cognition group. My training is in linguistics, computational linguistics and the neurobiology of language. I am fascinated by the brain, language, music, dance, rhythm.

I work with EEG and TMS at the moment investigating rhythm perception in language.
