Hi! I joined the Scholtelab as a PhD student in December 2015, working in the Brain and Cognition group of the Psychology department at the UvA. Under the supervision of Steven Scholte and Edward de Haan, I am investigating the functional architecture of the visual system and how this system extracts meaningful information from the external world. In my research, I use computational models of visual processing (artificial neural networks) and computational modelling of behavioral data. Before starting my PhD, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology (2013) and completed the Research Master Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, following courses from the Methodology & Statistics and Brain & Cognition tracks (2015).
