Reasearcher Bio
I studied Social Psychology (MA-degree, 2000), Neuro- & Rehabilitation Psychology (MA-degree, 2001), and the theoretical part of Biological Psychology, all at the Radboud University Nijmegen (Nijmegen, the Netherlands). Moreover, I conducted my PhD-student project at the Department of Biological and Medical Psychology from the University of Bergen (Bergen, Norway). I received my PhD-degree in 2007. In 2008, I started working as a researcher (postdoc) for the Free University of Brussels (VUB) (Brussels, Belgium). In 2009, I became visiting professor (non-tenured) and since 2010 I am full professor (tenured) at Kyung Hee University (Seoul, Republic of Korea) and guest-researcher at Harvard Graduate School of Education (Cambridge MA, USA).
