Im an assistant professor at the Brain and Cognition group of the Department of Psychology at the University of Amsterdam.
I did my Phd on unconscious and conscious visual perception of social stimuli at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, supervised by Philipp Sterzer.
I then spent several years as a postdoc in Marius Peelen's group at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences in Rovereto (Italy), studying attention.
Rik Janssen is doing her master thesis on unconscious interference in working memory.
In her project, she is testing the influence of invisible distracting information on visual working memory. Before that, Rik did her bachelor's thesis on effort-based decision making in virtual reality with Jasper Winkel.
Rik is 26 years old. During the weekends she works as a bartender, and she loves spending time abroad, both for her studies and for adventurous travels.
Mike Keijser is doing his master thesis on the relationship between consciousness and working memory.
In his project, he is testing whether metacognition tracks the contents of visual working memory, or whether the two can be be dissociated, as reported previously.
Mike is 22 years old. For the last seven (sic!) years, he has been working as a chef in the restaurant "Will's" in Nieuwegein during the weekends.
Hanneke Lettinga is writing her master thesis on decoding the temporal dynamics of conscious and unconscious object representations using EEG. We are testing whether object categorization in the human brain depends on visibility.
Hanneke is 24 years old. She lives in Bergen near the sea and works four days a week as a waitress in Wonder’s Egmond aan Zee. She also recently started working for VerzuimDiagnostiek in Amsterdam as a psychological assistant.
Carlo Rooth is doing his master project whether unconscious visual information can be maintained in visual working memory. This project will establish whether a two-process model is necessary to account for working memory maintenance, or whether a more parsimonious single-process model is sufficient.
