Personal profile

Research interests

The goal of my research is to achieve systems-level insights into auditory processing and attention and learning-induced modifications of auditory processing in healthy individuals. My main expertise is in auditory neuroscience. I started my PhD in 2008, when I was awarded the Dutch NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) ‘Toptalent’ grant to investigate natural sound processing in the human brain. I conducted my postdoctoral research at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (University of Minnesota; funded by a personal NWO ‘Rubicon’ grant). Here I broadened my expertise, learning the latest advancements in acquiring ultra-high field MRI data at sub-millimeter resolution. Last year I was awarded an early career grant (NWO ‘Veni’ grant), based on which I returned as a researcher to Maastricht University (the Netherlands) to study attention and learning from a computational and systems neuroscience perspective.
