ESR3: The interaction between code-switching, cognitive control and creativity in Polish-English bilinguals
Lead beneficiary: University of Reading
Main supervisor: T. J. Treffers-Daller
I obtained a masters degree in General Linguistics and Dutch Language and Literature at Charles University in Prague in 2017. Over the course of my academic training, spanning universities and research institutions in the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Norway, I cultivated a passion for the study and identification of cognitive processes and constraints underlying and shaping the way we use language. I have published several papers on how language components as abstract as grammar can influence our sensorimotor behaviour, or on linguistic processing in late-bilinguals. Currently, I work as PhD researcher at the University of Reading under supervision of prof. Jeanine Treffers-Daller, dr. Christos Pliatsikas and prof. Guillaume Thierry. My doctoral project focuses on the interaction between code- switching in comprehension and production, cognitive control, and non-linguistic creativity in late Czech-English bilinguals.
