I studied psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology at the University of Amsterdam and completed my master in social, cognitive and affective neuroscience at the Free University in Berlin.
Please find my CV here.
My main research interest is to understand the neural dynamics underlying visual perception. For this I use human electrophysiology (EEG), neuroimaging (fMRI) and multivariate analysis methods (decoding, RSA).
I work on two projects.
In the frist, I investigate how our brains form representations of an object’s category and how category-independent object properties are represented under varying viewing conditions.
In the second, I investigate the neural dynamics underlying Braille reading in congenitally blind individuals and the role of visual cortex therein.
