  • Profile

    I am an Assistant Professor in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), Department of Psychology. I am responsible for teaching and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students as well as conducting neuropsychological research at the department. My research interests are typical and atypical development of the brain, (social) cognition and psychopathology in childhood and adolescence. More specifically, my work has focused on elucidating potential underlying mechanisms that contribute to the onset of psychopathological phenomena, in particular for psychosis and autism.
