I am Professor of Computational Cognitive Science at the School of Artificial Intelligence in the Faculty of Social Sciences at Radboud University Nijmegen. I am Principal Investigator at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour and lead the Computational Cognitive Science research group.

I obtained my Masters degree in 1998 in Experimental Psychology at Radboud University and my PhD degree in 2003 in Cognitive Psychology at University of Victoria, Canada. From 2003-2006 I was a postdoctoral fellow and from 2006-2007 Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

My research interests lie at the interface of psychology, philosophy and theoretical computer science. I’m particularly fascinated by the computational scope and limits of cognition (including scientists’ cognition).
