Personal profile


I am an experimental psychologists interested in learning, memory, psychopathology, fear, and anxiety. To investigate these topics, I mainly conduct laboratory studies using the classical conditioning paradigm and psychophysiological measures (such as skin conductance and the startle reflex).

I obtained a PhD in psychology in 2016 from Ghent University, Belgium. Thereafter, I was a post-doctoral researcher for three and a half years at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. Currently, I am a tenure-track assistant professor here at Tilburg University.
