Welcome to the homepage of Joost Rommers.

News: As of August 2019, I am a lecturer (asst. prof.) in Psychology at the University of Aberdeen. If you are interested in working with me/collaborating/getting research experience, feel free to get in touch.

My research investigates the mind’s ability to think ahead and generate predictions about upcoming language input. I use EEG and eye-tracking to address questions about the contents of predictions, the underlying mechanisms and their consequences, and about how predictive behavior changes with age. I also have interests in language production and in memory. In the long run, I want to combine it all into models with implications for learning and education.

Before coming to Aberdeen, I was at the Max Planck Institute, the University of Illinois, and the Donders Institute.
