Fleur Bouwer is a PhD candidate in music cognition with Professor Henkjan Honing. She holds both a Master of Science in Psychology (cum laude, 2011, University of Amsterdam) and a Master of Music (with distinction, 2009, Amsterdam Conservatory). Currently, Fleur combines her fascination for the human brain and her passion for music in her research examining the neural underpinnings of rhythm and beat perception. Using methods like EEG and fMRI, she aims to further our knowledge about the exceptional bond between humans and music.


In addition to her work as a PhD candidate, Fleur is an enthusiastic educator, both in teaching courses at the bachelor and master level at the University of Amsterdam and in bringing the science of music cognition to the public. She is asked as a public speaker on a regular basis and combines appearances as a clarinettist with a short lecture about music and the brain.
