- Experience sampling method (diary studies)
- Clinical Psychology
- Affective disorders (depression, bipolar disorder)
- Time-Series analysis, Network analysis
- Qualitative research methods
- Implementation science

I combine qualitative and quantitative research methods with the ultimate goal to investigate the potential of the experience sampling method in clinical practice. I find it important to listen to the voices of patients and clinicians and use them in my research. I strive to close the gap between science and practice as much as possible.

I study individual differences in personality and subjective wellbeing ("happiness") and their lifespan trajectories and connections with affect/emotion/mood dynamics (internalizing problems) and the socioecology in which one lives and grows, especially intimate support relationships, daily activities, adverse events, culture, and history. I work at the University of Groningen in the Department of Psychology and in the Interdisciplinary Center Psychopathology and Emotion regulation (www.ICPE.NL). See Google.Scholar or  Researchgate for details. Currently working from home and interested in happy neurotics and the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic and the psychosocial consequences.

My research is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach to improve the classification of psychiatric disorders, in particular of major depression, using insights from clinical psychiatry, statistics, epidemiology, genetics, and philosophy of science. My main areas of expertise include major depressive disorder, psychiatric disease classification and statistical modeling, psychiatric genetics, and comorbidity.

As clinician and head of the clinical training programme for residents in old age psychiatry, I am daily confronted with the lack of evidence for the treatment we offer to our older patients with psychiatric diseases. This confrontation has motivated me to devote my own research line to clinically relevant research of the common mental disorders, i.e. mood-, anxiety and somatoform disorders. Herein, my main interest lies in the interaction between somatic health and these common mental disorders.

Epidemiology, prevention and treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders, with depression as a centra theme . My aim is to develop new interventions and clinical applications based on a better understanding of what goes wrong in depression, both on a psychological and a neurobiological level. My research is both in large patient cohorts such as the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA), in population studies such as LIFELINES and TRAILS, but also in smaller clinical studies. Pathophysiological mechanisms of interest include neuroinflammation and chronobiology, in which we have a number of PhD trajectories. Current trials include oral ketamine for Treatment Resistant Depression, anti-inflammatory drugs for depression, studies with Ecological Momentary Asessment and applications for self management developed together with patients.
As a clinician and a teacher I see patients with Treatment Resistant Depression in our Tertiairy Mood Disorders program.

Postdoctoral researcher
My main research interests lie in the development of patient-centered diagnostic and risk-prediction models for use in psychiatric practice. More specifically, my research focuses on the methodological and statistical approaches that are needed to develop such models in evidence-based research. My methodological/statistical interests lie in (1) Modern Psychometrics, (2) Modeling of (intensive) longitudinal data, (3) Prediction Modeling and (4) Machine Learning.
As part of my job, I work as a statistical advisor for researchers in the UMCG Department of Psychiatry and in affiliated mental healthcare institutions.
