I am a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. In my PhD project, I will be investigating how speakers are able to manage the speed-accuracy trade-off in conversation. For the first study of my project, I am mainly interested in exploring the nature of the errors speakers make under time pressure and the factors that explain their preference over producing correct utterances.
