About Roy!

Hi! My name is Roy Hessels and I am a postdoctoral researcher at Experimental Psychology, Helmholtz Institute and Developmental Psychology at Utrecht University, the Netherlands.

At Utrecht University, we currently run a large cohort study, called YOUth, in which we investigate neurocognitive development of around 6000 children. In this study, I am responsible for the entire eye-tracking operation.

In my research, I use eye-tracking to understand the role eye movements play in social interaction. For this, I use wearable eye trackers, and a state-of-the-art dual eye-tracking setup. In addition, I have an interest in eye-tracking methodology, as I believe there is much to be gained to improve eye-tracking measurements in psychological research.
