My research is situated in the field of second language acquisition (L2 acquistion, SLA) and deals with the impact of meaning- and form-focused instructional approaches on incidental L2 vocabulary learning. In order to measure learning gains, a combination of both explicit (i.e., pen-and-paper measures) and sensitive measures (i.e., reaction time measurement and EEG measurement) are used. Therefore, my research is situated at the intersection of applied linguistics and psycholinguistics.
