I am currently exploring the association between reading impairment (in dyslexia) and cross-modal / audiovisual processing. To that end, I use behavioural, electrophysiological and neuroimaging methods. Temporal perception and prediction are also topics of interest. In the past, I mainly focused on adult word learning and on the structural (linguistic) aspects that might influence that process.
