She has held postdoc positions at Northwestern University, University of Groningen, Utrecht University and Radboud University. She also took up a lecturer position at University of Amsterdam.
Susanne is interested in (moral) decision making and speech comprehension in ecologically valid contexts. More specifically, she examines how receiver limitations (i.e., being bilingual), contextual constraints (i.e., background noise) and sender limitations (i.e., accented speech) influence (moral) decision making and speech comprehension. Her research takes a multi-disciplinary approach in which she aims to contribute to knowledge of cognition, emotion and language processing, and the interaction thereof.
