Hi, welcome to my website!
From both a personal and professional point of view, I am pursuing the Human Potential. My aim is to enhance and optimize (cognitive) performance in healthy and safe ways. I believe this is important in dealing with the demands of our environment, which contributes to well-being and happiness.
I work as a researcher at the University of Amsterdam (Clinical Psychology), Leiden University (Cognitive Psychology), and the Academic Medical Centre (Medical Psychology), where I investigate how biological processes inside our bodies influence our brain and subsequent behavior.
The research I am currently conducting is funded by a Talent Grant I received from Amsterdam Brain and Cogntion (2017), a public-private Enabling Technologies Hotels grant from ZonMw (2017), an a KNAW van der Gaag Scholarschip (2017).
I love sharing my experience, knowledge, and ideas, and giving people food for thought. I speak Dutch, English, and a little bit of German.
