I am a postdoctoral researcher at UiT the Arctic University of Norway. I am affiliated with the AcqVA Aurora centre and the PoLaR lab at UiT.
My research interests lie at the intersection of linguistics, language sciences, and neuroscience. I am most interested in understanding the effects of speaking more than one language on cognition and the brain. In particular, I focus on the potential implications of bi-/multilingualism on neurocognition in the later years of life and on clinical neurodegeneration. I use a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging (EEG/MRI) methods in my work.
I am currently working with Jason Rothman, Vince DeLuca, Jon Andoni Duñabeitia, and Jubin Abutalebi under Research Theme 4 of AcqVA Aurora: MultiLingual Minds and Neurocognitive Adaptations.
If you are local to Tromsø, speak Norwegian and English, and are over 18 years old, please consider taking part in the EEGCAP project I am currently primarily working on.
