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. In current and future research, I focus on bias in AI applications.
My research thus focuses on philosophy of cognitive science (including AI) & mind, emotion theory, moral psychology and aesthetics.
Currently, I am doing a postdoc on implicit bias at the Barcelona Institute of Analytic Philosophy, and Logos at the University of Barcelona.
Before this, I was 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.
