Curriculum vitae (including a full overview of publications)
Inaugural lecture (in Dutch, 2 november 2009)


In his research, Paul and his collaborators examine the cognitive and neurological structures and processes involved in learning and reading, from early childhood to adulthood. The goals of the research programme are to identify such structures and processes and their development –both when they succeed and when they fail-, and to derive implications for effective diagnostic and intervention tools.
