Experimental Psychology

With a bachelor's degree in Pedagogical Sciences (2015) and a master's degree in Clinical Neuropsychology (2018), I have a broad neuropsychological background with a specific focus on child neuropsychology. 

Besides my work as a teacher, I work as a neuropsychologist at Royal Dutch Visio, a rehabilitation centre for the blind and visually impaired. Here, I focus on the neuropsychological assessments of children, adolescents and young adults with Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI). 

My PhD research at the Erasmus MC (department of neuroscience) is a collaboration between clinical practice and science. The focus is on diagnostic issues related to CVI in children, by linking existing neuropsychological tasks to visual behaviour (eye tracking). 

My current research interests include visual processing, eye tracking, child neuropsychology, clinical neuropsychology, neuropsychological assessments, rehabilitation and visual attention. 

I supervise theses and internships for the bachelor Psychologie and master Neuropsychology. I teach various courses within these programs, particularly focused on clinical neuropsychology: Neuropsychologische diagnostiek, Developmental Neuropsychology, Advanced Neuropsychology, Neuropsychologische revalidatie and Klinische Neuropsychologie.
