Prof. Dr. Antje S. Meyer

Director and Scientific Member at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen

Antje S. Meyer is a professor at Radboud University Nijmegen and a director of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen. She is also a principle investigator in the Dutch Research Consortium Language in interaction. Before taking up her current posts, she was a professor for psycholinguistics in the School of Psychology at the University Birmingham, UK.

Meyer is an experimental psychologist focusing on the way people use language. She has worked on various aspects of the psychology of language, in particular on the knowledge and processes involved in speaking and the relationship between thinking and speaking. Her current research is primarily directed at understanding how people use language in dialogue and how and why adults differ in their linguistic skills.

Whereas most experimental work on speaking and listening has been carried out with students, Meyer and her team make every effort to engage speakers and listeners with more diverse backgrounds in their research. Through their active engagement in research, participants obtain a better understanding of psycholinguistics and research in general.
