I am interested in how we process other people’s behavior, and in how others influence our own behavior. Since often more than two persons are involved in our daily social interactions, I mainly focus on situation where we interact with multiple people at once. In my doctorate (2018, UGent) I studied how our brains can process the actions of several people simultaneously, both visually and motorically. Currently I am continuing my work on this topic as a postdoc, and researching how we process the relations between others’ actions. For example, how do we know if two people interact or act independently of each other? And do these processes differ between adults with and without autism? Next to my research I am also actively involved in science communication. I do so as editor-in-chief of the popular science magazine In-Mind Nederland (https://nl.in-mind.org/).
