About

Overview

I investigate the social cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie social functioning in healthy individuals and individuals with schizophrenia. In my research I use neuroimaging and experience sampling methods to investigate the link between social brain mechanisms and real world social functioning.

After completing my PhD on the cognitive and brain mechanisms of social functioning in schizophrenia at the VU University Amsterdam and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London in 2012 I worked as post-doctoral researcher at the VU and the IoPPN. In October 2017 I started as lecturer in Psychology at City University.

I contribute to teaching in Biological Psychology on the BSc Psychology (PS1005) and Cognitive Psychology (PS2003), am personal tutor and supervise research students on undergraduate and postgraduate level.
