I started my career at Utrecht University in the bachelor Liberal Arts and Sciences. Here, I learned about the importance of interdisciplinary cooperation as a way to solve society's larger issues. Additionally, I dove into Cognitive and neurobiological psychology (major) and Language development (minor).
In my master Neuroscience and Cognition, I conducted two research projects in both cognitive (9 months) and developmental psychology (6 months). Additionally, I completed a minor in science education and communication, where I gained skills in communicating science to different audiences.
After my master's, I started as educational content creator and e-moderator at UMC Utrecht, and as a data manager at the Brain and Development Research Center. In these positions, I was able to combine promoting good research practices with creating educational scientific content for a PhD audience. Later, I continued my job as a data manager at the same developmental neuroscience group at Erasmus University Rotterdam and Leiden University.
Currently, I work as a data steward at the Utrecht University Library. In this position, I help researchers with their research data management questions and issues. Check out the What I do page for more info.
