Mathias Barthel did his Abitur in Germany in 2005, majoring in languages and finishing with a focus work on Interlinguistics and Planned Languages. He studied Language and Cognitive Psychology at the Universities of Leipzig, Germany, Wollongong, Australia, and Nijmegen, the Netherlands and received his Magister Artium in English Studies and General Linguistics from Leipzig University in 2012, specializing in Psychology of Language as well as Semantics and Pragmatics. He then moved to the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen for his graduate studies on the Psycholinguistics of Dialogue and received his PhD from Radboud University Nijmegen in early 2020. Mathias currently works as a PostDoc in Experimental Pragmatics at Humboldt University Berlin, Germany.

His doctoral thesis entitled "Speech Planning in Dialogue - Psycholinguistic Studies of the Timing of Turn Taking" can be downloaded here. Other publications are listed here.
