My work focuses on prejudice and face perception. I am also interested and working on social categorization, knowledge representation, and evolutionary processes, using virtual reality and reverse correlation methods.
Presently, I am assistant professor at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. In 2011, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University with Alexander Todorov. Before that, I worked on my PhD on visual stereotypes and face categorization, advised by Daniël Wigboldus and Ad van Knippenberg. I defended my dissertation on January 18, 2011, and received my PhD cum laude.
