Ines Marberg joined HULC Lab in March 2016 and works as a research assistant in the project “VIPICOL – Visual Processing in the Context of Language”. She obtained a magister’s degree in geography, physics and recent history of German literature from the University of Freiburg and worked in a scientific publishing house for several years before starting to teach German as a foreign language. In 2013, besides teaching, she began to study comparative German philology at the University of Heidelberg and developed a strong interest in psycholinguistics graduating in this field in spring 2017. Her main research interests lie in the process of conceptualization and the interplay between language, perception and cognition. She is also involved in a German-Colombian research cooperation investigating the effects of sensationalist representations in the discourse on poverty on cognitive processing and on emotional response.
