I am a corresponding editor of Music Perception and Empirical Musicology Review, and an advisory editor of the Journal of New Music Research. Advisory boards I have served in several review committees of interdisciplinary research of the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) as well as in a number of steering committees from Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), such as the Program Committee Computational Humanities. I’m a board member of the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition initiative and prospective advisory board member of the Meertens institute (KNAW). Furthermore, I was Vice-­‐
President Elect of the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) from 2007 to 2009. I also serve(d) in advisory boards of several public institutions promoting music and music education, including Muziek Telt!, Papageno and the Dutch Organisation for Music Therapy (NVvMT). Finally, I have reviewed grants for most of the major funding bodies in the Netherlands, Europe, the US and Canada (NL NWO and KNAW, EU FP7 and ESF, US NSF and NIH, Canada NSERC, UK EPSRC). Representative publications I published over 150 articles in international peer-­‐reviewed journals in domains reaching from music perception, cognitive and computational musicology and music theory to experimental psychology, neuroscience and neurobiology, using a variety of theoretical, empirical and computational methods.

For a complete overview see Representative Invited Presentations I have been an invited and keynote speaker at many symposia and conferences around the world. Examples include the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (Montréal 1996), Conference on Researching Musical Understanding (SEMPRE; Keele 2003), New Research Perspectives in Systematic and Comparative Musicology (Cologne 2005) Virtual Knowledge Studio, Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences (Amsterdam 2006), Symposium on Music, Neuroscience and Technology (Barcelona, 2007), Annual Meeting of the Experimental Psychology Society (York 2009), Montesorri conference (Rome 2012), Logic and Music Conference (Florence 2013), and the EvoMus Workshop (EvoLang, Vienna 2014), along with many other presentations at conferences and workshops in Europe and North America. Furthermore, I have served as an invited lecturer at a number of Summer Schools in, e.g., Barcelona, Plymouth and Leuven. A complete overview can be found at I have lectured to general audiences on music cognition and musicality in many different venues, including the Studium Generale program at the Universities of Utrecht, Groningen, Eindhoven, and Maastricht, and at a number of science festivals, including the Cheltenham, TEDx and World Science Festival. My work is frequently featured in the media, including national and international newspapers and magazines (NRC Handelsblad, Volkskrant, USA Today, the Guardian, Financial Times, Science News, New Scientist) and broadcast media including National Public Television and Public Radio. Several documentaries featuring my research have appeared on Dutch television. A complete overview of media attention to my research can be found at Funding Profile I received several prestigious grants in the last five years in collaboration with Leiden University (LU), Utrecht University (UU), and a consortium of KNAW research Institutes.
