Born from a journalist and architect I learned to observe the world and dream about the future.

But how do we see? During a Masters and PhD in Experimental Psychology I investigated the brain mechanisms of visual perception. I discovered the clear perspective of exact science. And stayed fascinated by a different question: what really motivates us? In search of answer, I wandered, looked around, wrote short stories (Prometheus, 2009) and performed a two-year research project on the motivating value of play at the Faculty of Industrial Design of the Technical University Delft.

In my NWO TTW funded projects at the Department of Human Movement Sciences of the VU University Amsterdam I investigate how performance feedback in rehabilitation games can be optimized to the brains' learning mechanisms.
