About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen. My main research interests are auditory and clinical phonetics, speech prosody, and second language learning. I obtained my BA in English Language and Culture in 2015 and my MA(Res) in Linguistics in 2017, both from the University of Groningen. In my interdisciplinary PhD project, I research non-native prosody perception in cochlear-implant-simulated speech.

PhD project

My PhD project titled "Perception of L2 prosody in cochlear implant simulations" is supervised by prof. dr. Wander Lowie, dr. Tassos Sarampalis, and prof. dr. Deniz Baskent, in collaboration with dr. Matt Coler. The research is carried out at the Center for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG; University of Groningen) and the Department of Otorhinolaryngology/Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT; University Medical Center Groningen) in affiliation with the Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN; University of Groningen).
