Dr Mirjana Bozic
Dr Mirjana Bozic is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
I study language as a cognitive and a neural system. My research focuses on the neural mechanisms that support spoken language comprehension. Using behavioural and neuroimaging techniques, I investigate how different properties of the speech input engage the underlying neural architecture to produce successful comprehension.
The second major strand of my research is bilingualism. I am interested in understanding the cognitive and the neural consequences of the ability to speak two (or more) languages.
