Jenni is the director of The Word Lab and a
Senior Lecturer at UCL Experimental Psychology.
I am interested in how we understand the meanings of the words that we hear or read, and how we combine together the information from individual words to construct representations of the meanings of sentences. I have a particular interest in how we use our recent and long-term experience with language to improve the efficiency of these processes.
I study these issues using a combination of neuroimaging (fMRI) and psycholinguistic methods.
