Hey! I am a PhD student in General Linguistics at the Institute of Linguistics (Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf). I specialize in Phonetics and Phonology, with additional interest in Morphology and Psycholinguistics.
I primarily focus on phonetic, phonological and morphophonological learning. I approach all three from a discriminative error-driven learning perspective. For my PhD-project, I investigate the learning mechanisms behind phonetic category acquisition (phonetics), behind sound pattern acquisition (phonology) and behind form-meaning associations (morphophonology). I use computational and experimental methods to answer these questions.
By investigating the learning mechanisms, I hope to gain a better understanding of how children acquire language and eventually learn to internalize and use the sound system of their language productively.
