Danny Dirker is working on his PhD in psycholinguistics at the University of Heidelberg. After teaching German for two years and obtaining a M.Ed. (’15) at Carthage College, Kenosha, WI, he became interested in cognitive and neuro-scientific perspectives on language. His motivation arises from the investigation of the language-cognition interface and the relationships between multimodal perception and action. His PhD research focuses on the investigation of mental imagery in event comprehension via eye tracking methods.
