Personal profile

Personal information


I am working on the ERC Starting Grant project "MEMTICIPATION" under the supervision of Dr. Freek van Ede. The aim of the project is to unravel how visual working memories are sculpted by their anticipated use.

Recently, there is an increasing appreciation that, while visual working memory is about the past, it inherently serves the future. It allows us to use detailed visual representations from the past to guided potential future actions, forming the bridge between perception and action. 

Currently, I am studying whether and how we can prepare for multiple potential future actions alongside visual working memory. To this end, I employ various methodologies: EEG, eye-tracking, psychophysics, and virtual reality.


For the course Cognitive Electrophysiology, taught by Dr. Freek van Ede, I have assisted in EEG data collection and -analysis practicals. Additionally, I have supervised research-master student projects, and continue to do so. Interacting and working with students is something I highly enjoy. 


I obtained my BSc. in Psychology, and MSc. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Amsterdam. For the latter I completed two research project. Within the IMCN Research Unit led by Prof. Birte Forstmann, I studied the EEG correlates of evidence accumulation in perceptual decision-making, under supervision of Dr. Bernadette van Wijk. Within the Addiction Research Group at Amsterdam UMC, I studied the fMRI correlates of metacognition in gambling disorder, under supervision of Dr. Ruth van Holst.
