About me

I am a doctoral researcher at the Chair of Language and Cognition of the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, where I am part of a research team investigating individual differences in first language and second/foreign language acquisition and attainment.

Research interests

I am broadly interested in the role that individual and cross-linguistic variation play in the first language acquisition process. In particular, my PhD project aims to examine the early grammatical development in monolingual Spanish- and Greek-speaking children (between 3 and 8 years of age), and its relationship with a number of cognitive (memory, learning) and linguistic (morphological complexity, phonological properties, vocabulary) factors. This will allow investigating the relative effect of each factor on children’s language abilities at different ages.
