After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology in 2017, I have started with a unique master track in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam: Brain & Cognition in Society. Throughout the Master’s programme, I have learned how to integrate and apply theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of brain and cognition in real-world settings. Currently, I am doing my master thesis at the Habit Lab, in which I am focusing on the development of an intervention aiming to improve education by promoting sustained, frequent and automated learning among high-school students. Here, practices from research into
dual-processing, operant conditioning and implementation intentions are used.
I am a first year Research Master’s Psychology student at the University of Amsterdam. I received my BSc: Psychology at Leiden University. My major is Brain and Cognition, but my interests also go towards Clinical psychology, public health, and stress. In my bachelor thesis we attempted to find a biomarker for vagus nerve stimulation, and I have long been fascinated with the relationship between mind and body. My current interest is in the neural correlates of habit formation and implementation intentions.
