My educational background is in neuroscience. During the internships of my current master’s program in Brain and Cognitive Science at the University of Amsterdam I try to combine techniques like computational modeling and imaging to investigate the decision processes that underlie social behavior.
My primary interest is about how implicit attentional shifts towards rewarding cues affect our daily behavior. Even though I aim to investigate these decisions at a very fundamental level, I am aware of the societal implications such attentional shifts can have. With the ambition to understand how civilization alters the fundaments of our behavior, I am very passionate about Green Politics. Together with the Dutch Young Greens, I try to become aware of our everyday habits that can be harmful to our environment and try out ways to make small, but significant changes to improve live circumstances of those that are spatially and temporarily distant from us.
In my free time, I love to run and row.
Well, I guess that’s it from my end. Enjoy the site and do not hesitate to contact me!
