Currently Irene is working in on her research master thesis with Rens and Loek Brinkman as her supervisors. They are building a simulation study to determine how many trials are needed in a perception task (reverse correlation; for more details, see Dotsch, Wigboldus, Langner, & Van Knippenberg, 2008) to obtain certain power taking into account other factors, such as complexity of the mental representation and complexity of the stimuli.
