I am a Ph.D. student in Daniel Balliet’s Amsterdam Cooperation Lab, working on interdependence and cooperation.
Broadly, I am interested in interdependence: What forms of interdependence with others we experience in daily life, by which mechanisms we infer interdependence from cues in our social environment and make sense of the situations we experience, and how subjectively experienced interdependence shapes cooperative behaviour.
I am a strong proponent of open science and support projects that further replication, pre-registration, and better theorising in the behavioural sciences. I also have a few related interests in the philosophy of science, such as theory formation and the problem of extrapolation from laboratory experiments.
I studied psychology, economics, and biology at Amsterdam University College (BA Social Sciences, 2013) and methodology and statistics and organisational psychology at the University of Amsterdam (MSc Psychology, 2016), with short stints at Harvard (2011) and McGill (2012). Before that, I worked as a journalist in Berlin. From 2014 to 2016, I was core tutor at PPLE College, University of Amsterdam.
