Welcome to my blog.

Here, I think out loud.

I am a graudate of the Artificial Intelligence 2-year Research Master track at the Free University of Amsterdam (VU),  where I specialized in Cognitive Science. For my master thesis, I have used cognitive modelling to understand the process of political polarisation. In 2014 I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the VU, specializing in Clinical Psychology.

Besides thinking, and writing, I am most interested in working on projects on the intersection of science, society, technology and (mental) health. Currently, I am working as Business Manager for a neurorehabilitation startup called NeuroReality. We use virtual reality and gamification principles to make brain training software that will help patients with cognitive deficits, whilst having fun!
