More information

Back to overview

The main goal of my research is to investigate how children and adults construct mental representations during learning and in what ways they can best be supported or stimulated during this process.

The various domains in which I investigate this involve learning from static and dynamic visualizations, reading comprehension, mathematical word problem solving, (cultural differences in) time representation, problem solving, and (collaborative) learning in higher education.

This research is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach mainly integrating cognitive (neuro)science, educational psychology, social science and gesturing research, and covers both fundamental (e.g., unraveling learning processes) and applied (e.g., interventions for improving comprehension) work.
