About me

HomeLanguage DevelopmentSergio Miguel Pereira Soares

As a postdoctoral researcher at the Language Development Department of the Baby and Child Research Center, my main goal is to plan, design and analyse research projects for children. At the moment I am working on a project entitled “Early Precursors of (Cognitive) and Language Development”, where we try to figure out by looking at the brain how early auditory and visual stimuli influence the way language is developed.

Before starting this job, I did a PhD at the University of Konstanz, where I researched the effects of speaking more than one language on the brain. Even before that, I studied biology in my bachelor's and neuroscience in my master’s at the University of Zurich. 

You may meet me when you are invited to participate in on of my studies. I am very much looking forward to meeting you here at the BRC!
