Research interests and collaboration goals

Currently, I am a PhD candidate and the principal investigator in the research project funded by The National Science Centre entitled Counterfactual Imagination and Pretend Play: The Cognitive Underpinnings of Human Creativity (PRELUDIUM 11; for years 2017-2018). So far, I have been teaching cognitive neuroscience and logic, and leading workshops of creative thinking for students of Cognitive Science at KUL. Previously, I earned MA in psychology and philosophy at KUL. I have also studied psychology at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam

My research interests include mainly the cognitive approach to creativity and imagination. At present, I study the role of counterfactual imagination in children’s pretend play and the folk theories of creativity.
