Sanne de Wit graduated in Biological Psychology at the University of Nijmegen in 2002, and then received a scholarship to obtain her PhD degree at the Dept. of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge,. Her PhD project was supervised by Prof. Anthony Dickinson, and concerned the associative and neural mechanisms mediating goal-directed action, habits, and response conflict resolution (in animals). Following several postdoc positions, she was appointed as university lecturer at the Dept. of Clinical Psychology at the University of Amsterdam in 2011. Her current research focuses on associative and neural mechanisms of goal-directed and habitual action control in humans, and the disruption of action control in psychopathologies (such as drug abuse, obesity and obsessive-compulsive disorder).
