Joost Agelink van Rentergem

I joined d’Arc as a post-doc in the Fall of 2017. My research is on aging in autism. I am interested in differences between strategies that people use to complete cognitive challenges (in the lab and outside the lab), and whether this strategy use affects the speed of cognitive aging. I am also interested in finding out whether there are subgroups of people who have different prognoses in terms of cognitive aging.

I am a methodologist by training and did my PhD at the University of Amsterdam on the Advanced Neuropsychological Diagnostics Infrastructure project, which provides a normative database and interactive website for clinical neuropsychologists to use in diagnostics.
