About me…

My name is Lisa, I am from the Netherlands and I have studied Human Movement Sciences at the VU in Amsterdam. During my Master I did an exchange at the Department of Biobehavioral Sciences of Teachers College, Columbia University in NYC. Since October 2015 I work as a Early Stage Researcher within the PACE network at the Institut de Neurociències at the Universitat de Barcelona.


Why I joined PACE…

During my Master I fell in love with research. I got especially interested in perception and action.

When the PACE network came to my attention I did not think twice and applied. The network has so many interesting research projects and opportunities and includes many researchers with a lot of expertise. I feel very lucky to be part of it.

My Project…

When we learn a new skill, like catching a ball, initially we’ll make errors. We are able to use the information of these errors to change our prediction of the result of our next action. My project aims at understanding how humans use error information in the movements they make to improve future performance.



I did a secondment at Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, Marseille to work with the KINARM.
