As a cognitive neuroscientist I am specialized in neuroimaging in the field of human decision-making and action control. I make use of behavioral paradigms and neuroimaging techniques including MRI and EEG, and combine these with computational models of brain and behavior.

I am Assistant Professor at the department of Cognitive Psychology, Leiden University. There I study neural and functional mechanisms of metacontrol, teach courses in cognitive neuroscience, and chair/coordinate the multidisciplinary minor Brain and Cognition.

As a science advocate, I have organized the Dutch March For Science in 2017, and currently chair the Stand Up For Science movement in The Netherlands. I am passionate about improving the role of science in society by critically reflecting on science and the academic system within, as well as moving forward in communicating to the world outside the science bubble.
