Short CV

Saskia Heijnen is a PhD candidate at the Cognitive Psychology Unit. She has completed a bachelor in Psychology, a pre-master in Philosophy, a research master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience (cum laude), and a master's degree in Philosophy of Psychology (cum laude).

 

Research

With interest at the intersection of disciplines, Saskia's research consists in applying a philosophical perspective to the field of computational modeling in cognitive (neuro)science. She is studying what characteristics are highly praised in computational models of cognitive control processes, "theoretical virtues", how these trade off with one another, and whether choices in these trade-offs relate to different goals in constructing the model. Her work will provide a systematic way of evaluating and comparing computational models, thereby encouraging convergence within the field of computational modeling of cognitive control processes, as well as encouraging interdisciplinary work.
