Research

"Knowledge is power" (Francis Bacon)


Memories shape our lives more than we can ever imagine. They make us who we are. This is why the memory system in our brains is so fascinating to me.


My research is strongly influenced by my honest belief that understanding more about how memories get stored in our brains can help us to better remember information that is important to us.


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the VU University Amsterdam's department of Educational Neuroscience. My research aims to help students to learn well, people to remember what is valuable to them, and elderly to keep their precious memories for as long as possible!
