During a successful career as both an artist and entrepreneur, I developed a profound interest in the neural mechanisms underlying visual perception that lead me to my current efforts.

After graduating with a Cum Laude degree in Psychology, track Brain & Cognition at the University of Amsterdam I moved to Nijmegen for the Masters Programme in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Donders Institute.

I joined the predictive brain lab for my second year internship and investigated how multisensory information is maintained working memory together with Alexis Pérez-Bellido. After graduated Cum Laude I started with my PhD, funded by an NWO research talent grant.

For my first project, I will investigate how expectations interact with selective attention, thereby improving visual search .

Though hooked on neuroscience, I also really enjoy to cook for and travel with my family.
