Josje de Valk joined the Meaning, Culture and Cognition group in November 2014, after finishing the Research Master Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. During her degree, social psychology has been her main interest. She studied for instance emotion recognition in humans & chimpanzees and helping behavior in children.

She is responsible for the practical and administrative side of research alongside of being involved in research projects. Currently, she is working on cross-modal correspondences and soon starting a project on texture ideophones.
