Research Assistant | Lab Manager
I started my academic path by studying Psychology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. After a while I developed an interest towards the role of the brain in human behaviour and decided to follow up this inspiration by doing a research master in Cognitive Neuroscience.
During this phase I developed a fascination for various neurocognitive processes like perception, attention, consciousness, and decision making. One of my great ambitions is to find out how all these different processes are combined in the brain, and to develop a complete picture of human brain functioning.
To that end, I aim to further build my academic career by gaining more experience with behavioural, neuroimaging, as well as computational studies, in order to eventually contribute to the field of neuroscience with my own research.
My current interest lies in how human decision making is shaped by social factors like trust and likeability, and how this is represented in the brain. In the Decision Neuroscience Lab I will work on two research projects. With Jeroen I will investigate the underlying mechanisms of trust and reciprocity, while with Inge I will look at decision making in the context of scarcity.
In my free time, I enjoy listening to and making music (particularly when guitars are involved), discussing and reading about politics and philosophy, and in the sports department I often like to go for a run and the occasional bike trip.
