Marja Oudega received a Research Master's degree in Linguistics from Utrecht University. In March 2012 she started at the Brain and Education lab as a PhD researcher in the project 'Fostering reading comprehension skills' under supervision of Prof. Paul van den Broek.
I investigate the role that 'standards of coherence' play in the comprehension process. These standards determine what level of comprehension a reader attempts to achieve. Standards are not only expected to vary between good and poor readers, but also within a reader, for example as a result of reading goals.
