We are Tilburg University


I studied psychology in Heidelberg and Amsterdam, and received my doctorate from Leiden University for my dissertation on the cognitive foundations of decisions in social and moral dilemmas, which I worked on at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods in Bonn. I am currently researching physiological measures in social decision-making contexts at Tilburg University. I am a former fellow of the Fellowship Freies Wissen, working on developing an open online course on the methodological basics of scientific experimentation, incorporating open science practices.
