Ricarda Bothe

Ricarda graduated from Université Paul Valéry Montpellier III and University of Washington in 2016 with a BSc in Psychology. During this time she specialized in Cognitive Neuroscience and worked with Prof. S. J. Webb at Seattle Children´s Research Institute where she investigated 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 Masters in Cognitive Science where she studied the effects of reading in second language processing with adults. During a cross-laboratory internship at the Univeristy of Hawaii she conducted research with Prof. T. Grüter exploring 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. Her work aims to examine cross-domain influences on early word learning in infancy. This project ‚‚Crossing the borders: The interplay of language, cognition, and the brain in early human development‘‘ is funded by the DFG and conducted in collaboration with the University of Potsdam (https://crossing-project.de).

Further, Ricarda is a member of the DFG funded Research Training Group 2070 “Understanding of social relationships” through the “Behaviour and Cognition” PhD program.
