He graduated from Berlin Free University (1998) with Master Degree in Linguistics, Psychology, and Computer Science. At focus of his research interests are experimental studies of language, working memory, cognitive control, and bilingualism.

Language is a human facility of vital significance for everyday life. Though it is implemented in the human brain and culture through a host of cognitive processes, language itself exerts profound influence on our consciousness and cognition. The intricate relationship between language and cognitive processes is far from being clear despite a multitude of hypotheses and years of empirical studies. This special issue invites articles addressing the bi-directional influences between language and cognition to review recent advances in this area of interdisciplinary cognitive research. Topics may include but are not limited to processes of syntactic and semantic analysis, neurolinguistics and cognitive neuroimaging, metaphor comprehension, psychosemantics, bilingualism and cognitive aging, inner speech research, developmental language disorders and deficits, etc. Descriptions of original experimental studies, systematic reviews, as well as methodological and theoretical papers of high quality are accepted.
