About me

I studied psychology at the Radboud University Nijmegen, with a specialization in cognitive psychology and a focus on motor control. I wrote my bachelor thesis on action coordination between multiple agents in a joint action setting, under supervision of prof. Ruud Meulenbroek. After that, I enrolled in the cognitive neuroscience research master program and soon started a PhD project under the supervision of prof. Ivan Toni and dr. Floris de Lange, and later also by dr. Lennart Verhagen, at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (Nijmegen, the Netherlands). In this project, we investigated how brain regions in the ventral and dorsal visual stream contribute to the planning of goal-directed actions, using functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging, kinematic recordings, and transcranial magnetic stimulation.

In 2019 I joined SineLab at DTU Copenhagen, Denmark as postdoctoral researcher. Together with Ivana Konvalinka I have been working on interpersonal neural synchronization during joint action. In 2021 I joined the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab of Angelika Lingnau at the University of Regensburg, Germany, where I am working as senior postdoc/Akademischer Rat.
