Curiosity is a fundamental biological drive and it is important for many of our daily pursuits and interactions. However, little is known about its behavioral and neural mechanisms. I am interested in questions like: "Why are we curious?" and "What type of information are we curious about?"
I have completed a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Cognitive Neuroscience (cum laude) at the Radboud University. I received a Donders Institute TopTalent PhD grant to investigate the neural mechanisms of curiosity. During my PhD, I am jointly supervised by Floris de Lange and Roshan Cools.
