We are Tilburg University
As a teacher for Communication and Information sciences I enthusiastically teach about my expertise Psychology of Language and Non-verbal communication. Furthermore, I enjoy preparing students for their theses, by guiding them through the research process and learning them about statistics.
In my research, I aim to find out more about the non-verbal communication of people with aphasia. After studying the gestures used by people with aphasia, I now focus on the conversation partners of people with aphasia and whether they notice these gestures. Furthermore, I try to work together with aphasia centers in the area, to answer questions from clinical practice. We have finished projects on the online experience of people with aphasia, and on therapies for reading difficulties.
