We are Tilburg University
I received my BSc in Cognitive and Neurobiological Psychology (cum laude) and my MSc in Neuroscience and Cognition from Utrecht University. During and after my studies I worked on research projects at Utrecht University, the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Philips and TNO. In about a year, I will obtain my PhD in Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence at Tilburg University. My PhD thesis will be the result of a collaboration with 33 industrial partners and a range of experimental studies examining the physiological underpinnings of learning and training and related experiences in virtual environments. During the wide range of research projects I was involved in in the last 7 years I gained experience in working with different types of subjects including patient groups and in applying cutting-edge techniques such as virtual and mixed reality and multiple techniques of measuring human physiology, ranging from eye-tracking to electroencephalography.
In my research I’m especially interested in combining different cutting-edge technologies and techniques to answer relevant theoretical questions in the area of psychology and cognitive science. Within the research project in which I am currently involved as a PhD candidate I focus on behavioral, cognitive and neurophysiological processes during learning and training in virtual reality.
Additionally, I have experience in research related to perception, alertness, biofeedback, linguistics, deception and anxiety.
