Research Interests

I study the motor and cognitive control of spoken language production, in particular the mechanisms involved in the goal-directed retrieval, selection and organization of information for fluent language generation at its sensorimotor and lexicosemantic levels of representation. I have investigated these questions using behavioral techniques, computational modelling, functional imaging and electroencephalography.
