I am passionate about research that combines philosophy and psychology and provides knowledge about socially relevant topics such as racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. I have done research on implicit bias (such as implicit prejudices and stereotypes), emotions, moral psychology, aesthetic experiences, and various interactions between these topics.
My research thus focuses on philosophy of cognitive science (including AI) & mind, emotion theory, moral psychology and aesthetics.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at UAntwerp and KULeuven. In October 2019, I started doing interdisciplinary research with a team of social psychologists from Agnes Moors’ Lab at KULeuven on implicit bias and implicit racism. I received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the FWO (Flemish Research Foundation).
I took a break from this project during the academic year of 2020-2021, because I received the British Society of Aesthetics Postdoctoral Award. I did research on fiction, emotion and implicit attitudes at Birkbeck College (University of London).
I was a postdoctoral researcher at Thumos, which is part of the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, at the University of Geneva (2018-2019). I received a Postdoctoral Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship to do research on emotion and implicit bias.
In 2018, I completed my doctoral studies in philosophy at UGent and UAntwerp, at Bence Nanay's Research Group (Centre for Philosophical Psychology). My doctoral work is on emotion and mental content.
