  • Profile

    I am a PhD student at the University of Amsterdam in the group of Cyriel Pennartz. I work on topics in the field of cognitive and systems neuroscience including multisensory integration (where and how do the different senses interact in the brain), brain states (why does perception degrade under anesthesia) and communication principles between different brain areas. 

    I previously worked at the Champalimaud  Centre for the Unknown (in the lab of Zach Mainen).

    Additionally, I work at the Dutch Brain Bank, where I coordinate autopsies to collect human brain tissue for scientific research.
