about

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University's Department of Education, where I work with prof. Tamara van Gog and prof. Liesbeth Kester. I'm interested in learning, memory, and the brain - and in ways to support learning with well-designed instruction. More on my research interests here.
