Hi, I am Tessa. I'm 29 and originally from Amsterdam, but I've lived in London for the last 5 years. I'm a researcher at a university in London, investigating how children's brains change as they develop and learn. I love my job. I get to ask questions about how we come to see the world through our development, work with children and geeky scientists and travel the world to talk about it. Besides work, I love to travel, meet new people and see interesting places. I'm sociable and easygoing but also independent. I love going to theater, exhibitions, concerts and bars, and having a good glass of wine with nice people makes me very happy.
