I am a psychologist and I work as a PhD-student in psychology at the Dr. Leo Kannerhuis as well as at the department of Brain and Cognition of the University of Amsterdam/d’Arc (Autism & ADHD Research Centre). In my PhD-project, I will focus on psychophysiological individual differences in adults with autism spectrum disorder. I will conduct studies that study the relationship between psychophysiological (e.g., heart rate variability) and cognitive control (e.g., inhibition) measures in relation to social skills and sensory sensitivity in adults with autism.
Before I joined d’Arc, I received my master’s degree in Health Care Psychology at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Since then, I have worked part-time as a research assistant in various studies on autism and ADHD. I also worked part-time as a clinician with people with autism.
