I joined Oxford in October 2018 as a research assistant in the Attention, Brain and Cognitive Development lab. In this role, I am currently collaborating on a longitudinal project where we are interested in the relation between executive functions and early mathematics abilities in preschool children.
Before coming to Oxford, I was a PhD student at the University of Hull in numerical cognition, studying the Approximate Number System, executive functions and their relation to mathematics achievement in children aged 4 to 8 years.
In 2013, I graduated as a clinical psychologist from the Brussels University (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) with my main profile in biological and cognitive psychology. During my master, I was an intern in the Center for Neurosciences in the Department for Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Drug Analysis, collaborating on projects examining Parkinson's Disease, epilepsy and cognitive decline. For my thesis, I conducted in vivo research on the role of hippocampal connexin43 in spatial memory decline in rodents.
