Personal profile

Research interests

I am a member of the LCC research program of the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication. My reserach operates in the fields of cognitive science, psycholinguistics and computational linguistics. In particular, I investigate how language production (what you say) is mediated by visual perception (what you see). This way, I aim to integrate verbal and visual aspects of communication.
