About me:

My name is Marisa Stahl-Kügler, I studied "German-Italian Studies" at Bonn University and today I am a Ph.D. student at Kiel University.

I laid the foundation for my studies in 2004/2005 when I spent a year abroad in Messina (Sicily). There I learned Italian and decided that this language should accompany me all my life.

I wrote my bachelor thesis in Florence: "Passare", "portare" ed i loro correspondenti tedeschi - un'analisi cross-linguistica, corpus-based della Variazione Primaria.

In my Master's thesis I have been working on language learning research and I have made my first findings in psycholinguistics. The thesis is entitled: *Il libro è leggeto - a priming experiment on the use of the passive voice by German learners of Italian and Italian learners of German.

In my Ph.D. project now I am continuing working on psycholinguistic topics.
