About me

I am an applied cognitive scientist and data scientist. I like developing computational models to better understand the mind, and exploring how we can use these models to address real-world problems.

I work on the scientific development of adaptive learning software at MemoryLab (formerly SlimStampen), using theory, modelling, and data to improve learning and assessment for hundreds of thousands of learners. I completed my PhD at the University of Groningen, under the supervision of Hedderik van Rijn, Jelmer Borst, and Florian Sense. My PhD focused on several building blocks for data-driven optimisation of adaptive fact learning systems.

My recent projects include predicting learners' performance on new materials to make learning more efficient (paper), assessing the benefits of adaptive learning during a pandemic (paper) as well as in normal times (paper), disentangling the cognitive factors that contribute to performance on memory retrieval tasks (paper), and modelling forgetting across timescales (preprint).
