In 2013 I I completed my Bsc (Cum Laude) at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Subsequently I completed a Msc (Cum Laude) in ‘Psychology & Law’ at Maastricht University in 2014. As of 2014 I am enrolled as a PhD student at the University of Portsmouth.


My research interests are focused on different methods to detect hidden knowledge in suspects. That includes physiological tests such as the Concealed Information Test (CIT) using either ANS or EEG measures or cognitive tools, such as Forced Choice testing. Primarily my research has focused on the theoretical understanding of Forced Choice testing and methods to increase it’s detection accuracy and applicability.
