As a Senior Consultant at Noldus Information Technology, my primary task is applying for research grants for projects and joining consortia in which Noldus develops our innovative solutions for behavioral research. I am also chair of the scientific program committee of the Measuring Behavior conferences and the Data Protection Office for Noldus. My research background is in ecology, and I worked in that area for about 10 years in Britain, Egypt, the Netherlands and the United States. I moved permanently to the Netherlands in 1995. I joined Noldus in 1999 as a technical writer, later becoming a designer, was then head of the Services department for a decade until I became a senior consultant specializing in grant applications in 2013. Specialties: Behavioral research, scientific methodology, biology, psychology, HCI and human factors, neuroscience, grant applications.
