Cesco Willemse completed his MSc in Biological and Cognitive Psychology at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2009. After working as a Research Assistant in the Brain and Development Lab at Leiden University he returned to the Erasmus University Rotterdam as EEG-assistant in 2011. His experience in cognitive development and brain-imaging eventually led him to gain a PhD studentship in the School of Psychology at the UEA in 2012.

Cesco’s current research, preliminary title “Information Processing and Anxiety: Evidence for a Causal Role?,” will investigate how various cognitive information processing biases are associated with the onset and development of child anxiety. Cesco’s research will combine longitudinal and experimental designs and make use of a range of methodologies including eye-tracking and neuronal event-related potentials (ERPs).
