I am interested in understanding human cognition by constructing computational cognitive models.

I did my PhD at the Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering of the University of Groningen, under the supervision of Rineke Verbrugge and Niels Taatgen.

During my PhD research, I studied the development of second-order theory of mind (e.g. "She believes that he knows that ...") in terms of learning in decision making, transfer of skills, cognitive control, working memory and language.
