I am associate professor in linguistics with a research focus on language development through the lifespan, on linguistic processes in general, and with a special interest for cognitive aspects of writing. I have studied language production in real time in both writing and speaking. Particular focus is on the process behind a written text: what happens during writing? What is changed, and when? When do writers think and plan, and when do they read during writing? Through the years I've been involved with several research projects addressing these issues. I use and develop several research methods, and is one of the developers behind the keystroke logging program ScriptLog, which also has been combined with eye tracking. 

I am currently engaged in a collaboration with speech and language therapists, where we aim at developing new methods to intervene and improve narrative writing for fifth-graders.
