Research Interests

My current research interest focuses on the development of language production in children as compared with adults. To reach this goal, I employ various behavioral, acoustic and articulatory methods. 

In current projects, I am investigating the maturation of speech motor control together with phonological & lexical developments in typically developing German children (DFG grant) as well as children at risk for reading disability (Marie Curie grant).

Other domains of interests regard 1) the link between spoken language & reading acquisition, 2) speech planning both in adults and children 3) the relation between speech production & perception and how this relation develops with age.
