About me

As of October 2021, I started my PhD project in the BabyBRAIN lab in which I will study the neural correlates of young children’s curiosity. I am interested in how these relate to intrinsic motivations for learning progress. To explore these themes, I tend to use neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI and EEG.

Before my PhD I worked as a research assistant at the Donders Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. There I was responsible for collecting fMRI data of children, adolescents and adults for the Language in Interaction project.
