About me

Short bio

I grew up in the Netherlands, where I obtained an MSc and PhD in Computer Science at University of Groningen. From 2009-2012, I worked as a postdoctoral associate in the Ma Lab, which at the time was located at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. From 2013-2015, I was a research associate in the sensorimotor learning lab of Daniel Wolpert at the University of Cambridge. Currently I am an associate professor at the Psychology Department of Uppsala University.

Research interests

I am mainly interested in models of perception, decision-making, and working memory. See the research page for more information on my work. You can find a copy of my CV here.
