I am full Professor at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands and Principal Investigator of the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute.
I obtained a Master's degree (cum laude) in Artificial Intelligence in 2003, and a PhD degree (cum laude) in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2008, both at Radboud University Nijmegen. During my PhD research, supervised by Ivan Toni, I investigated how mental simulations of perception and action are neurally implemented, using fMRI and MEG. From 2007-2009, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Stanislas Dehaene at Neurospin, Paris, France. Here, I investigated the neural dynamics of conscious and unconscious decision-making. From 2009, I established the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute, where we study how various forms of prior knowledge modify perception and decision-making, both in health and disease.
