I am studying at Birkbeck for a year in a project that is going to be part of my PhD at the University of Helsinki. At CBCD, I am  working with professors Gergo Csibra and Dick Aslin, and Dr Elena Kushnerenko. In Helsinki, I am working in the Early Auditory Skills research group in the Cognitive Brain Research Unit.

Research interests

My research interests include early language learning and more specifically the statistical learning mechanisms related to language acquisition. Currently, I am studying the statistical skills for word segmentation in newborns and how different cues affect the learning of phoneme categories in older infants.
