“Everybody lack confidence, everybody lack confidence.
How many times my potential was anonymous”
(Kendrick Lamar, i)

I am a research professor at the Brain and Cognition research unit at KU Leuven (starting October 2020). In my research, I study the computational and neural underpinnings of decision confidence (i.e., metacognition) and their relation to regulatory behavior (i.e., cognitive control). During my post-doc, I was an FWO [PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow, working in the lab of Tobias Donner (UKE, Hamburg) and the lab of Tom Verguts (Ugent).

Feel free to contact me for any questions or queries.
