Individual Grant Officer
I am part of a team helping researchers at Tilburg University obtain funding for their projects. As an Individual Grant Officer, I specifically help with personal grants offered by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and the European Research Council (ERC). We give information on the different grant schemes, share writing tips and read proposals to provide feedback.
I myself worked as a researcher for nearly ten years in the area of psycholinguistics. I was interested in language production, conversation, attention, individual differences and EEG.
From November 2019 till May 2021 I work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Kara Federmeier’s Cognition and Brain Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I use EEG and online studies to investigate prediction and production processes in both younger and older adults.
From mid 2016 till mid 2019 I worked in Antje Meyer’s Psychology of Language group at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. I investigated whether we plan for production whilst listening to our conversational partner to respond quickly, and what the consequences would be of such simultaneous processing.
I obtained my PhD early 2016 after three years investigating the question whether sustained attention plays a role in language production using behavioral methods, eye-tracking, and EEG. I was supervised by Antje Meyer (MPI for Psycholinguistics) and Ardi Roelofs (Radboud University).

I was born in vibrant and multicultural Rotterdam (The Netherlands) where I lived for 21 years before moving to the small city Nijmegen close to the German border for what was supposed to be a short time. Instead I stayed for nearly ten years, falling in love with this loving hippie city. Now I live in Urbana in Illinois, trying to fully experience and enjoy American life whilst not gaining too many extra kilos.
I’m an avid sports fan and music lover. My own talents are limited but I like to play tennis and I used to be alright at playing guitar. I like to watch tennis, football (the European kind but I am giving the American version a try), and speed skating. Arctic Monkeys are the best band in the world.
