    My main interests are the acquisition of language in typically and atypically developing children, with a focus on syntax. At the moment, I am investigating the comprehension of passive sentences by German-speaking children and adults using eye tracking and EEG, and if the comprehension can be improved through various priming techniques. The ultimate goal is to establish whether children with atypical language development may benefit from priming and improve their comprehension of passive structures, and whether this effect may lead to a “spillover“ effect to other types of sentences. I am also working on a similar transfer of priming in bilinguals.
