I am a neuropsychologist working on sensory processing for perception and the guidance of action. I gained my PhD, working in London and Oxford on sensorimotor consequences of hemispherectomy under supervision of Larry Weiskrantz and Faraneh Vargha-Khadem. Next, I spent a year at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol investigating outcome after stroke rehabilitation after which I moved to St. Andrews University to work as a postdoc with David Milner on visual perception and action.

In 2000 I started at Utrecht University, where I have been appointed recently as professor of Neuropsychology of Perception. A copy of my inaugural speech can be found here (in Dutch).
