About me

I am a cognitive neuroscientist working at the Brain and Cognition department of the University of Amsterdam (assistant professor) and the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging at the Donders Institute for Brain Cognition and Behavior (research fellow). I study the role of consciousness in cognitive control and decision-making using various imaging techniques (EEG, functional/structural MRI, MEG). Hopefully, this will eventually contribute to a better understanding of the neural mechanisms and function of consciousness. 

A brief history:
I started my PhD in May 2005 at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). In that period, I was part of the Cognitive Neuroscience Group of Victor Lamme and the Amsterdam Center for the study of Adaptive Control in Brain and Behavior (ACACia) of Richard Ridderinkhof. After obtaining my PhD, I started working as a post-doc in Victor Lamme’s Lab (www.cognitiveneuroscience.nl). At the end of 2010 I moved to Paris for two years to work together with Stanislas Dehaene, Lionel Naccache and Laurent Cohen (www.unicog.org) (on an NWO Rubicon grant). I returned to the Netherlands in 2012 on an NWO Veni grant and I am starting my own lab now at the UvA.
