I am a full Professor at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior (Faculty of Social Sciences) and affiliated researcher at Center for Languages Studies at Radboud University and Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. I am also the Director of the Multimodal Language Department- members of which are distributed over Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Center for Language Studies and Donders Institute for Cognition at Radboud University.
As a language and cognitive scientist I investigate cognitive and social foundations of human language capacity from a multimodal ( in speech , gesture and sign ) and cross-linguistic perspective .
I am also dedicated bridging the gap between science, technology (AI), society and education and making scientific practices inclusive and available for people with diverse backgrounds and languages as well as for immigrants, women and deaf individuals across the globe and in developing countries.
