Anouschka obtained her MA degree in English Language, Ancient History and Media Studies at Mannheim University in Germany. As part of her studies, she spent a year abroad teaching university-level German at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. She then completed her MA and PhD degrees in Linguistics with a specialisation in Psycholinguistics at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, USA. She also worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the highly interdisciplinary Collaborative Research Centre “Alignment in Communication” at Bielefeld University in Germany. She is currently Lecturer in Psycholinguistics at Bangor University. Her current research focuses on how non-native speakers process sentences as well as produce and comprehend prosody (the “melody” of languages). She is also working on a project on how listeners perceive male and female speakers. Anouschka is very keen to get more involved in impact-generating activities, in particular, in relation to linguistic discrimination.
