As an experimental psychologist, I am intrigued by autism spectrum disorder, and specifically interested in recent accounts that propose autism can be understood from a predictive coding perspective. In an attempt to contribute to the research field on autism and ultimately the well-being of autistic individuals, I am investigating expectations and surprise responses in adults with and without autism. To this end, I use neural and behavioral measures in a variety of fields such as auditory perception, reinforcement learning and affective preferences for predictability. Currently I am focusing mostly on cognitive flexibility in autism, as a postdoc in the lab of Senne Braem. Before, I did my PhD in Marcel Brass' lab and worked as a visiting researcher with Juanita Todd & Bryan Paton (University of Newcastle, Australia). Outside of neuroscience, I also like to dance, play the fiddle and spend time with friends in nature.
