As Information Specialist, part of my job is providing research support in BMS. I assist our scientists in matters like finding sources, writing, publishing and data management. I am occasionally involved with systematic literature reviews, from training, setting up research, or in projects like the NRO Kennisrotonde. I'm most passionate about neuropsychology and the societal impact of research.

UT Research Information System


For several Bachelor and (Pre-)Master programmes of BMS Faculty, I've been asked to teach information literacy. This academic skill enables students to efficiently search for and critically evaluate information. Topics in my lecture include the online library and scientific databases, search queries, referencing and bibliometrics.

My colleague Marit and I have also been working on digitizing our education as a series of online microlectures, available for anyone:
