Utrecht; Department of Experimental Psychology
During my Ph.D. I have studied how eye-movements influence visual and auditory perception. What we perceive is at the basis of human functioning. It is therefore crucial to understand the underpinnings of perception, and how perception can be aided when a sensory system (such as vision) is lost.
Due to my excitement for statistical analyses I've made myself an invaluable asset to the research team (AttentionLab, as well as Multisensory Space Lab). Furthermore, I've developed a deep understanding of both R and Python, and regularly teach colleagues interested in learning either.
My main tasks during my Ph.D. were designing experiments, data analysis, scientific writing and programming.
Other daily tasks include (not exhaustive):
Supervising theses of both Master and Bachelor students, teaching psychology workgroups, teaching programming courses, presenting my research verbally in both Dutch and English, maintaining the department website (https://perceptionutrecht.com/), analyzing data as a collaboration with other scientists, and demoing eyetracking set-ups to third parties.
I graduated and received the title of Ph.D. on January 25th, 2019.
