Jonathan is a visiting doctoral student
from the University of Twente, The Netherlands, where he is on the Re-LOAD project, studying motor skill learning in
older adults. He is especially interested in sequence learning in the
“Research on elderly is of great
importance for the aging society. I hope that our findings will eventually lead
to a higher quality of life for the elderly, and to a better understanding their capabilities.”
He holds a MSc (research)
in cognitive neuroscience and a BSc in psychology from the University of
Leiden. He also holds a BSc in communication and multimedia design from the
Rotterdam University of Applied Science. Jonathan is particularly interested in
the intersection of technology and human behavior, ranging from applied
cognitive psychology to brain-computer interfaces.
In the future, Jonathan sees himself as
someone who comes up with creative answers to real-life questions through good
research. He hopes to be able to apply his knowledge of aging and cognition
while collaborating with an inspired, interdisciplinary team.
Outside the lab, Jonathan enjoys
cycling, running and sports in general. He also has an interest in small
programming projects, design (graphics and interior) and new technology.
