I am a Ph.D. candidate  at the Institute for Language, Logic and Computation (ILLC) and the department of Philosophy of the Faculty of Humanities, at the University of Amsterdam. My supervisors are Martin Stokhof and Erik Rietveld and I am part of the VIDI-project ‘Landscape of Affordances: Situating the Embodied Mind’.

My current research interests lie on the intersection between theoretical neuroscience, embodied cognitive science and phenomenology. I am interested in how brain, body and world contribute jointly to everyday skillful behavior. I think ecological psychology and phenomenology provide the right context in which to understand new developments in theoretical neuroscience and neurodynamics (such as the Free Energy Principle).
