I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment How does body temperature affect perception of time?
I understand the question, but for it to be taken seriously it at least has to be framed as a real question and not just any possible hypothesis. Look for any references which lead you to asking this question. E.g. "Does the average intelligence of a bunny increase when drinking soup on a daily basis?" is also a 'clear' question.

From where do you get the notion that people in general drink cold beverages during a horror movie and warm drinks while coding?

comment 'Model-free' learning in humans
Ideally, answer it yourself and go a bit more in depth in your answer while reading through the google hits you now found. It's a genuine question, I prefer not closing it. Just make sure you google a bit better next time. ;p
