Research statement

I am a PhD candidate working in the lab of Prof. Dr. Serge Dumoulin at the Spinoza Centre of Neuroimaging and the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam.

My research mainly focuses on studying the relationship between neural magnitude maps and perception by using advanced biologically inspired modelling (population Receptive Mapping) tools, which has been used advanced to predict models of human neuronal populations in visual cortex. My research interest contains perceptual magnitude, magnitude illusion and optical illusion.
