I joined the Conscious Brain Lab as a PhD-student in June 2017, after obtaining my Master’s degree in Neurobiology at the University of Amsterdam. Under the supervision of Simon van Gaal, I will be investigating the system-level neural correlates of consciousness via behavioral, pupillary and EEG measurements.


In order to determine the neurobiological underpinnings of these neural correlates I will run additional pharmacological studies in which specific neurotransmitters and neuromodulatory systems will be manipulated. Through this multi-level approach, I aim to provide fundamental insights in the neural causes of consciousness.
