I am a second-year research master’s student in Cognitive Neuroscience (Language and Communication track) at Radboud University, Nijmegen. My research interest generally lies in the role of neural oscillations in language production and comprehension, and more broadly how and why these oscillations can give us any functional explanations of various aspects of language processing in the brain. Currently I am working on my master project, co-supervised by Dr. Vitoria Piai and Dr. Ashley Lewis, where we will explore the endogenous oscillatory rhythms underlying hierarchical syntactic structure building during sentence production. Using EEG, we design sentence typing experiments and will investigate whether neural oscillations temporally encode the hierarchical phrasal structures during language production, and whether it works (if it works at all) in the way of linear grouping or hierarchical embedding manner.
