An interdisciplinary researcher in the making, I am very keen to understand how cultural practices shape our cognition, and vice versa.

The METATOOL project I will be part of during my PhD trajectory at TU Delft is highly interdisciplinary: the ambition is to achieve a break-through synthetic awareness capable of inventing tools in a replication of our ancestors' intelligence. Working in a team with the principle investigators Drs Geeske Langejans and Carlos Hernandez Corbato during the next four years, I will contribute to the foundations of the project expanding the ROCA ontology, conducting experiments, and modeling cognitive systems.
