ESR1: Early bilingual heritage speakers acquiring a foreign language at school

Lead beneficiary: University of Konstanz

Main supervisor: T. Kupisch

About me:

 I studied Biology and subsequently Neuroscience at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. My academic interests are bi-/multilingualism and language acquisition, specifically in relation to the brain. I started my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Tanja Kupisch and Prof. Jason Rothman (Project ESR1) on L3/Ln Language Acquisition at the University of Konstanz. I will be employing neurophysiological methods, i.e. EEG/ERP, to answer my research questions. I am also involved in an L3 transfer and language acquisition (Spanish-English bilinguals and an artificial language as 3rd language) study with EEG and a Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and bilingualism experience/immersion project at the University of Reading

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie grant agreement No 765556.
