Marina Koleva

Hello! I am a junior researcher in the linguistics development team.

I am in my final months of a Research Master in linguistics where I focused on multimodal interaction,
language acquisition, and multilingualism. Other interests of mine include the psycholinguistic explanation
behind text readability, and what different languages consider a ‘well-written’ text. The latter is in fact quite
culturally-specific!

Therefore, my job in Yoast ticks off several of my interests and ambitions: keeping up with the state-of-
the-art achievements in linguistics, and at the same time applying research into practice.
On the more personal side, I come from Bulgaria and as every true southerner I love good food, long
conversations with friends at a table, and arguing about politics. La dolce vita, as the experts in it call it.
