Myrthe Faber is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Notre Dame, USA, working with Sidney D’Mello. She received her PhD in psychology (2016) from the University of York, United Kingdom, and holds an MA (Linguistics, 2011) and two BA degrees (Linguistics, 2008; Dutch Language & Culture, 2008) from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. Myrthe’s main research interest is how we build mental representations of discourse and visual events. She is interested in how the structure of text and events influences attention allocation and memory encoding, and how this in turn affects higher-level cognitive processes such as learning and decision making.
