About

Ian FitzPatrick was born in Halmstad, Sweden on July 16th 1981. After moving to the Netherlands at age 5, FitzPatrick attended Openbare Basisschool De Drieschaar and obtained his Voortgezet Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs (VWO) diploma from Regional Scholengemeenschap Het Rhedens in 1999. FitzPatrick received his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Leiden (Netherlands) specialising in Neuropsychology before reading Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (Netherlands), during which time he co-founded the student journal Nijmegen CNS. He did his Master’s research project on bilingual speech recognition at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. Peter Indefrey, graduating in September 2006. From October 2006 to December 2009, FitzPatrick conducted his PhD research on spoken word recognition in non-native sentence contexts at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and Donders Institute, culminating in a PhD thesis entitled: "Lexical interactions in non-native speech comprehension: Evidence from electro-encephalography, eye-tracking, and functional magnetic resonance imaging", which he publicly defended on March 16th, 2011 at the Radboud University Nijmegen. From January 2010 to June 2011 FitzPatrick worked as a Postdoc at the Department of Techology and Information of the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain. As of July 2011, FitzPatrick is working as a Post-doctoral researcher at the Institut für Sprache und Information at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf (Germany) in collaboration with the Donders Institute.
