About me

HomeLanguage DevelopmentNienke Rulkens-Dijkstra

For a couple of years now, I really enjoy working as a research coordinator of the Language Development department at the Max Planck Institute.

In this job I am involved in setting up and conducting new studies on language development. I am responsible for managing our research assistants, as well as interns. They assist all researchers in scheduling appointments with parents, and running experiments with infants and children.

Furthermore, I support the BRC lab managers in performing their variety of tasks. Language (and the young child) in development fascinates me a lot, which makes the BRC a wonderful and inspiring place for me to work!
