Dr. Christoph Scheepers

I obtained my psychology degree at the University of Bochum in 1991 and my Ph.D. at the University of Freiburg in 1997. I held a two-year post-doc position at the University of Glasgow (1998-2000) before starting a C1 assistant professorship in computational linguistics at the University of Saarbruecken (2000-2003). I then held a lectureship in psychology at the University of Dundee (2003-2005) before moving to Glasgow in October 2005 where I currently hold a senior lecturer position. My main research areas are psycholinguistics and the psychology of language. I employ various brain-imaging and behavioural methods, including the recording of eye movements during reading and linguistically aided scene perception (visual-world paradigm). I’m an editorial board member for JEP:General, Cognition, Frontiers in Language Sciences and Collabra.
