Hi, I am a postdoctoral researcher in Andrea E. Martin's lab at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging at Radboud University, Netherlands. I am a computational cognitive modeller — I develop and test psychological and neuroscientific theories using formal modelling techniques. My main interests are: a) creating and evaluating models for conceptual organisation, semantic memory, and categorisation; b) metascience; and c) data science more broadly. Additonally, I am an editor-in-chief at ReScience C and a topic editor at Journal of Open Source Software.

My undergraduate degree was in Computer Science. After that, I moved on to an MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences. I then undertook a PhD in Psychology on computational models for semantic memory.

I am committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in (open) science, e.g., promoting access to technical skills training — including the broader decolonisation of computational sciences. Relatedly, Christina Bergmann and I maintain a list of underrepresented cognitive computational scientists.
