The Moral Brain

From 2014 to 2018 I was a PhD student at the Decision Neuroscience Lab at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behavior, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands. I currently work as a postdoc in the Social & Affective Neuroscience Lab at Brown University in the United States.

My academic work revoles around the question why people are nice to each other. How do we make social decisions that affect people around us, and how are these decisions implemented in the human brain? By combining insights from psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral economics, I attempt to contribute to our knowledge of ourselves.

In the video below – in Dutch – I explain one of my experiments.
