My PhD project concerns syntactic structure transfer in bilinguals. We employ psycholinguistic methods to see how different bilinguals process sentences in their respective languages, in order to examine whether or any transfer between the grammars of the available languages occurs. I am specialised in psycholinguistics, eye-tracking and statistical analysis in R, and I am currently developing experience with EEG and Python.
