I'm working as a postdoc in the SFB 833 and am one of the project leaders among Wolfgang Sternefeld and Rolf Ulrich of the project Incrementality of Semantic Interpretation. My research focuses on semantic interpretation and in particular, how and when the semantic representation is computed during online sentence comprehension. Grown up both in linguistics and psychology, I'm especially interested in relating semantic theory and concepts from cognitive psychology. Recently, I've started to study the interactions between contextual infarmation and incremental semantic interpretation. This is the topic of my recently funded XPrag.de project Composition in Context.
