Peta is a PhD candidate at the Donders Institute for Cognition, Brain and Behaviour. Her work, funded by the ‘Nationaal Regieorgaan Onderwijsonderzoek’ (NRO), aims to determine how specific neurocognitive mechanisms of second language word learning can be integrated in a learning method for educational settings. Peta received her Ba in Multilingual Communication at the University of Geneva; and her Ma+MPhil in Language and Communication at Tilburg University. She is particularly interested in how scientific research outcomes can be put into practice in second language learning classrooms.
