Biography

I obtained a BA degree in Psychology from the University of Sofia (Bulgaria) in 2013 and a MSc degree in Linguistics from the University of Potsdam (Germany) in 2015. During my Master's degree, I also did study visits at the University of Eastern Finland and the University of Groningen (the Netherlands). I completed my PhD degree from Bournemouth University between 2015 - 2018.

Research

In my research, I am using eye-tracking to study how readers process words and sentences, and how attention is allocated in this process. My current research focuses on a few topics: computational modeling, saccade targeting during reading, auditory distraction, and parafoveal processing. I am also interested in statistical inference in psychology, evidence synthesis, and the philosophy of probability.
