Peter A. van der Helm received his Bachelor's degree in Fundamental Mathematics (1979) and Master's degree in Numerical Mathematics (1981, Cum Laude) from the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente, and his PhD in Social Sciences (1988, Cum Laude) from the Department of Cognitive Psychology at Radboud University Nijmegen. He has been a Fellow of both the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. He continued his research as Assistant Professor at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University Nijmegen, and is now Visiting Professor at the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology, University of Leuven.
