I received my Bachelor and master’s degree in theoretical and experimental psychology from the University of Ghent (Universiteit Gent), Belgium, respectively in 2013 and 2015. During my master’s degree I interned at the Attention and Cognitive Control lab (ACC) at the University of Oxford under the guidance of Professor Nicholas Yeung.

 

Research Interests:

I am mainly interested in adaptive decision-making and how properties of decisions arise from neural activity. I focus on the construction and emergence of error awareness and confidence judgements, utilizing non-invasive methods such as electroencephalography (EEG) to examine the interplay between neural correlates of decision-making and confidence.

Thesis:

Now you hear me, now you don’t: the role of error monitoring in sensorimotor synchronization to temporal differences in music. Master Thesis (2015).
