Currently I am part of the Puzzle of Danish project, where we investigate why and how Danish may be different from other languages. Through a series of psycholinguistic experiments we explore the processing of Danish at phonological, sentential and dialogue levels. I am responsible for the experiments at phonological level.

My research interests also include the processing of grammar and its organization in the brain, language breakdown in aphasia and especially in agrammatism and cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. In my research I use transcranial magnetic stimulation, corpus studies and behavioural methods. I am a proficient user of R and I program my experiments in PsychoPy.

Throughout my education and research career I have developed and taught the following courses:

  • Clinical linguistics/aphasiology/neurolinguistic analysis of speech and language disorders
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Experimental methods
  • Statistics (an introductory course)
  • Morphology and syntax (an introductory course)

I have co-taught or supervised the following courses:

  • Reading circle (discussion of neuro- and psycholinguistic research articles for masters students)
  • Experimental linguistic lab
  • Psychiatry
  • Armenian
