Reasearcher Bio
I obtained my Master's degree in experimental psychology from the University of Ghent, Belgium in 2005.
From 2005 to 2009 I worked as a graduate student at the Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Lab at the BCN NeuroImaging Center in Groningen, The Netherlands. My PhD thesis focused on the cognitive and neural basis of hallucinations in schizophrenia in the summer of 2009.
I accepted a postdoctoral position at Neuroscience Research Australia (formerly the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute), in Sydney in November 2009.
