Since February 2014 I am a PhD candidate at the Psychological Methods group of the University of Amsterdam. My research is primarily involved with optimizing the learning benefits of large-scale online learning systems. I closely collaborate with my PhD-supervisors Gunter Maris and Han van der Maas, our research partners Cito and Oefenweb, and many others, on a variety of projects.

Modeling cognitive development

We aim to describe patterns of cognitive development with a novel formal model—in collaboration with Gunter Maris, Han van der Maas, Frederik Coomans, Abe Hofman.

A/B testing in online learning

We aim to intervene in large-scale online learning systems, such as Coursera, in order to enable (1) evidence-based iterative improvement of these systems and (2) adaptive and personalized learning experiences (read more here, here, and here)—in collaboration with Joseph Williams, Annemarie Zand Scholten, Nienke Ruijs, Oefenweb.

Diagnostics in learning

We aim to identify students' 'cognitive pathology', such as suboptimal strategies or straight misconceptions, such that these students can receive targeted interventions—in collaboration with Gunter Maris, Timo Bechger, Joost Kruis.
