I have just started my PhD with Cedric. I’m from Germany, where I studied linguistics during my BA. I did my MA in Cognitive Science and Language here at the UB two years ago, and then I went on to do a the MSc in Brain and Cognition at the Pompeu Fabra University around the corner from here. I am interested in the evolution of human-specific cognitive traits. I am going to be working on the genetic basis of Down syndrome and Williams syndrome.
