In 2020, I completed my master’s degree in Linguistics: Cognition and Communication at the Philipps-University Marburg. During my studies, I worked as a research assistant for the Gestik3 project and wrote my master’s thesis using data from this project.

Currently, I am a research associate and doctoral candidate working on both the Gestik3 project and the upcoming SOKO project, which will be focusing on dysfunctions in social cognition in schizophrenic patients.
