Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition Group
I obtained a B.Sc. in neuropsychology at the University of Amsterdam and completed my masters degree in social, cognitive and affective neuroscience at Freie Universität Berlin.

In my PhD research I study the spatial and temporal neural dynamics underlying invariant object recognition using human electrophysiology (EEG), neuroimaging (fMRI), deep neural networks and multivariate analysis methods (decoding, RSA).
I work on three projects, each involving EEG and fMRI. In the first project I investigate how our brains represent the location of an object under varying degrees of scene clutter. In the second project I study the role of top-down attention for such location representations. The third project focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying invariant Braille letter recognition in congenitally blind individuals and the role of visual cortex therein.
