In the last few years, my work mainly focused on a longitudinal study of cognitive development. A battery of more than 20 behavioral were administered three times to over 200 children over a period of four years. My tasks consisted of designing the experiment, recruiting participants and collecting and analyzing the data. During my Master thesis, I had the opportunity to gain further experience in research, in the field of language and literacy development. Next, I refined my research skills by performing experiments with animal models (e.g. Morris water maze; elevated plus maze; open field test; three-chamber test) as research assistant at the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. My PhD project at the Brain and Language Group, consists of systematically investigating behavioral and brain correlates of audiovisual learning processes in typical and dyslexic readers.
