2014-2016 Honours Master ‘High Tech Systems and Materials’, University of Groningen
2009-2014 B.Sc. in Cognitive Systems: Cognition and Brain, University of British Columbia
My research interests lie in cognitive neuroscience and human-computer interaction. By increasing our understanding of cognition I would like to develop innovative, intuitive interfaces. I am particularly interested in brain-computer interfaces and human-robot interaction. The focus of my Ph.D. will be on curiosity and its application to robotics.
