  • Research

    Ioli Baroncini’s research interests concern the processing of syntactic phenomena in bilingual speakers across various ages and language combinations. Specifically, she is interested in both grammatical and ungrammatical syntactic influence across languages.

  • Biographic Information

    Ioli Baroncini studied Italian Language and Literature (BA) at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Teaching Italian Language (MA) at the University for Foreigners of Perugia. She completed her PhD at the University for Foreigners of Siena (2021) on experimental psycholinguistics. She investigated cross-linguistic influence in Greek-Italian bilingual children adopting priming experiments both within and across languages.

    Since September 2022 she works as a postdoctoral fellow for the DFG project P2 Priming in contact-setting bilinguals and monolinguals as a driver of language change  within the DFG Research Unit SILPAC.
