I am a developmental cognitive neuroscientist interested in everything related to youth development, education and the brain. I obtained my PhD in 2016 (cum laude). I am currently working as an assistant professor in Educational Neuroscience at Leiden University.
During my PhD research I studied the development of the brain, learning and school performance. Moreover, I focused on the influence of brain connectivity on risk-taking and alcohol use in adolescence.
I am coordinator for the EARLI Neuroscience and Education Group.
