I am an assistant professor at the Psychology Research Institute of the University of Amsterdam, where my PsySci lab is based. My research interests are in social and cultural psychology, within which I focus on the psychology of belief systems and worldviews. Most of my research targets the psychology of science.

I have master’s degrees in Psychology of Culture and Religion (Radboud University Nijmegen; 2004) and Social Psychology (University of Amsterdam; 2006) and a PhD in Social Psychology (University of Amsterdam, 2012; cum laude).
In 2012-2013 I worked as a postdoc at the University of British Columbia, at the Centre for Human Evolution, Cognition, and Culture (HECC) and the Heine Lab. I have been working at the University of Amsterdam since 2014 and am involved in several research projects with my colleagues at the Amsterdam Uncertainty Lab and many others. In 2019 I started the Psychology of Science (PsySci) lab.
From 2014-2017, my research was funded by the AXA Research Fund. In 2019 I was awarded an ERC starting grant on the psychology of science skepticism. I serve on the editorial board of Journal of Experimental Social Psychology and am a fellow at the Young Academy of Europe.
