2017-2021 Ph.D. Computer Science: Human-Computer Interaction, University of Waterloo, Canada
2014-2016 M.Sc. Human-Machine Communication cum laude, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
2014-2016 Honours Master ‘High Tech Systems and Materials’, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
2009-2014 B.Sc. Cognitive Systems: Cognition and Brain, University of British Columbia, Canada
I am working towards my Ph.D. with Dr. Edith Law and Dr. Dana Kulic at the University of Waterloo. 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. To this end, I am currently focussing my Ph.D. on curiosity and its application to educational social robots.

- How does a curious or a metacognitive robot peer influence student learning?
Co-designing Educational Robot Peer with Teachers
School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo Human-Computer Interaction Lab - Dr. Edith Law
- We are working with teachers in an effort to discover what roles an enducational robot peer could play in the classroom.

Psychoacoustic Experiment on Voice Perception
Department of Otorhinolaryngology (Audiology), University Medical Centre Groningen,
Speech Perception Lab - Dr. Deniz Baskent (co-supervisor: Dr. Marieke van Vugt)
- Psychoacoustic experiment on voice perception with cochlear implant (CI) and hearing aid simulations. Results show a bimodal hearing benefit which is limited to fundamental frequency perception.
EEG-based Neurofeedback System (Brain-Computer Interface)
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Groningen,
Belief, Perception, and Cognition Lab - Dr. Jacob Jolij (co-supervisors: Dr. Deniz Baskent & Dr. Marieke van Vugt)
- Developed and pilot tested an electroencephalography (EEG) based neurofeedback system for improving speech perception in CI users. Results indicate a necessity for further research on event-related potentials, specifically the P300 waveform, elicited by non-word, vocoded speech stimuli.
EEG study on Theta Oscillation Phase-Locking
Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering, University of Groningen,
Cognitive Modelling Group - Dr. Marieke van Vugt
- EEG study on theta oscillation phase-locking after attentional blink (AB) training. After training away the AB, no significant increase found in theta oscillation phase-locking.
