Ava Creemers

Ava Creemers is a post-doctoral researcher in the Psychology of Language department at the MPI. Her research focuses on how people comprehend language, and in particular, she is interested in whether language processing is automatic and always complete, or whether it can also be just good-enough, and under what circumstances. Ava received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in the US in May 2020, where she designed experiments to examine how people process and understand words that consist of multiple pieces, such as teach-ing, teach-er, or class-room. Before that, she did a bachelor’s and research master’s in Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam.

In her spare time, Ava likes to go for long runs along the river Vecht and she aims to cook her way through all of the Ottolenghi cookbooks.
