Welcome to my personal webpage!

I’m a researcher within the field of Cognition and Hearing.

PictureI’m the  project manager of the Marie-Slodowska Curie H2020 ITN EID project “HEAR-ECO” that will soon start with the work of 6 Early Stage Researchers on the development of ecological test conditions and measures for the evaluation of hearing aid benefit. These measures include pupillometry, measurement of the pupil size, as index of listening effort. HEAR-ECO is a collaboration between the Section Ear & Hearing, Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery of the VUmc, Oticon A/S, the University of Nottingham, and the Liverpool John Moores University.

I just finished the  2-year personal EMGO ReVanche project: “The Pupil Response and Individual Listening Load (PupILL): Towards the development of a clinically applicable measure of cognitive processing load in daily life hearing”.  This study was performed at the Section Ear & Hearing, Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Amsterdam Public Health research institute at the VU University medical centre in Amsterdam. The study focuses on the validation of pupillometric research to study processing load during listening.
