    About Frouke Hermens

    I studied cognitive science and computer linguistics at the Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands), where I graduated in 2000 with a thesis project conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. After a year in Oldenburg (Germany), I completed my PhD project in the biophysics department of the Radboud University Nijmegen, with additional research projects at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) and Penn State University (USA). After various postdoctoral positions (EPFL, Switzerland; Royal Holloway University of London, UK; University of Provence, France; University of Leuven, Belgium), I took up a lectureship at the University of Aberdeen (UK). I joined the School of Psychology in Lincoln as a senior lecturer in 2015.
