About me.

WHAT DRIVES PEOPLE?

How does the human mind work? To uncover its mysteries I try to approach human behavior and neuropsychology from different angles and see how I can apply the takeaways in business.

That is why, after my Master in Work- and Organizational psychology, I studied different disciplines such as UX design, (neuro-)marketing, behavioral economics, gamification and more. I combine my background in research and psychology, with practical experience, to define and design solutions that make an impact.

BACHELOR & MASTER W&O PSYCHOLOGY.

I began my Bachelor in Work- and Organizational Psychology at the University of Utrecht, but finished at Kyoto University in Japan. The experiences I gained overseas broadened my worldview and inspire me daily in my work and private life. I returned to the University of Utrecht to get my Masters degree. My Master was split between ‘Strategic Human Resource Management’, ‘Organizational Development’ and ‘Work psychology’. I got a firm grasp in doing objective research, coaching, consulting, mediating and providing leadership.
