Ricarda Bothe

Ricarda graduated from the University Paul Valéry Montpellier III and the University of Washington in 2016 with a BSc in Psychology. During her third year she worked at Prof. Webb's lab in the Seattle Children´s Research Institute, which investigates how typically developing children and children diagnosed with ASD encode visual information, and how these encoding processes are impacted by developmental disruptions. In 2018, Ricarda graduated from the Technical University Kaiserslautern with a Master's in Cognitive Science where she studied the effects of reading in second language processing with adults using eye-tracking in her final project. During a cross-laboratory internship at the University of Hawaii in 2018 she conducted research with Prof. Grüter and explored the effects of wh-priming in second language learners of German.

In September 2019, Ricarda joined the Psychology of Language group at the University of Göttingen as a PhD student.
