I am Assistant Professor at the Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. My main research interests are neurocognitive processes driving addictive behaviours, with a focus on smoking. I am passionate about how various processes going on in our brain contribute to our behaviour in an implicit way. In the last decades, neuroscientists have discovered a lot about brain functioning in different types of psychopathology and in my current and future research I aim to bridge the gap between neuroscience and clinical practice, for example by investigating neural mechanisms underlying interventions.
