dr. Harrie Boelens


I am assistant professor in the Developmental and Educational Psychology unit of Leiden University. During my undergraduate studies, I became interested in the effects of the consequences of behaviour. The universities of Utrecht, Tilburg, and Leiden have allowed me to express that interest in studies of various creatures. For my master's degree, I studied the inference of grammars by machines. For my PhD, I studied self-control and choice behaviour in pigeons. Leiden University has offered me the opportunity to study, and teach about, young children. Nowadays, I am especially interested in the control of young children's word productions. I am also student advisor in the master specialisation Child and Adolescent Psychology.

Project: The development of executive control in color- and object naming in children
