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

For the next few years, I am also a Guest Professor at the Department of Linguistics, Cognitive Science, and Semiotics, and the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University, Denmark. I will be visiting regularly to set up collaborations in education and research.

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).
