I am a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I have a broad background in cognitive science, computer science, and psychology. In my research, I am interested in the evolution and development of sensitive periods – time periods during which experiences have a particularly large impact on development. I use mathematical models to explore how different environmental conditions, such as environmental change, shape patterns of sensitive periods across development. I am also interested in developing a statistical framework for studying environmental stability and change in empirical data.
I am currently working on a statistical framework for studying environmental stability and change in empirical data. In the near future I am planning to extend my current work on modeling the evolution and development of sensitive periods.
