My main research interest is visual word recognition. In particular, how the brain networks of normally reading adults process written information. Specifically, my PhD focused on the early frontal aspects of the reading network and how they respond to phonological information during reading. During my PhD, I have used a variety of methods to explore this topic, including, magnetoencephalography (MEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and fMRI.
I am currently exploring differences between the reading networks of native Dutch and English speakers using TMS and fMRI, in the Department of Cognitive Neuroscience at Maastricht University.
