Biography

Currently, I am a doctoral student at the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology at KU Leuven, under supervision of Prof. Johan Wagemans. I highly value good research practices. My research interests include visual aesthetics, perceptual organization, individual differences in perception, Bayesian statistics, and many more.
