Associate Professor, Faculty of Science



After obtaining my PhD in Psychology in December 2007 from the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), I worked first for two years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Duke University (United States) on a project with Prof. David Rubin about the temporal distribution of autobiographical memory and subsequently for another two years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Hokkaido University (Japan) on a project with Prof. Makiko Naka about cultural differences in autobiographical memory. I was subsequently a Vice-Chancellor's postdoctoral research fellow at Flinders University (Australia) working on a three-year project about the self-enhancement function of autobiographical memory. In May 2015, I started as an Associate Professor at the Malaysia Campus of the University of Nottingham.
