Research interests

My primary research interest lies in visual cognition, to understand how the brain and mind enable us to perceive, attend, and remember information from our visual environment. Other subjects that interest me include judgment and decision making, scientific reasoning, and the application of insights from cognitive psychology to understanding phenomena in every-day life.  

 

I currently supervise four PhD projects about the following subjects:

Hemispheric specialization in  visual information processing: Sanne Brederoo

Guidance of attention by information in working memory: Edyta Sasin

Psychology of second chances and resit exams: Rob Nijenkamp

Media-multitasking and information processing: Wisnu Wiradhany
