After my education in communication science, social psychology and sociology, I started my PhD project in August 2017 in the department Health Psychology. My project (financed by the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF Kankerbestrijding)) is on the care needs of cancer patients who suffer from depressive symptoms. During my project, I will conduct three studies; the first is an ESM study on depressive symptoms to see which symptoms are most central in cancer patients. The second study is a longitudinal study to examine how barriers, coping mechanisms, social support levels, and illness perceptions make that a large group of cancer patients with depressive symptoms does not seek help for these symptoms. In this study we will also examine if depressive symptoms decrease over time and how this relates to coping mechanisms, social support levels and illness perceptions. In a qualitative study, we will examine underlying ideas, goal dis- and re-engagement, and ask people who did seek psychological care why they decided to do so.
My project is supervised by Dr. M.J. Schroevers, Prof. Dr. A.V. Ranchor and Dr. J. Fleer.

My research focuses on vanishing boundaries between work- and non-work life as one aspect of today´s rapidly changing working conditions. I investigate the impact of these changes on employee well-being and performance as well as the role of modern information and communication technology. My aim is to generate knowledge to understand topical societal phenomena and to bridge the scientist-practitioner gap by communicating scientific knowledge to a wide audience of scientists from various disciplines, professionals working in the field, students, and wider society.

I am currently working in the lab of Prof. dr. Mariët Hagedoorn and Prof. dr. Robbert Sanderman as an Early Stage Researcher for the ENTWINE Informal Care  Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Innovation Training Network ITN funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme. 

In my project "Diversity of Experiences in Caregiver-Care Recipient Dyads", I investigate the interpersonal processes that stimulate or decrease willingness to care and wellbeing in couples as well as other caregiving dyads over time. A full understanding of the caregiving experience is essential to support caregivers and care recipients and help them to increase their reciprocal willingness to provide and receive care. For this reason, my project is structured as dyadic research which includes both caregivers and care recipients. 

This project is part of the "ENTWINE iCohort", an International Intensive Longitudinal Study aimed at detailing the current and future caregiving challenges taking into account the psychological, relational, cultural and socio-economic aspects of the caregiving issues across Europe.

Intensive longitudinal designs (e.g., couple diary studies)

Illness not only affects patients, but also those who are close to them. To be able to provide adequate health care and psychosocial support, it is important to understand the consequences of illness for daily life, and emotional and social functioning of both patients and their significant others. Accordingly, the research in my lab "Intimate relationships in the face of illness" focuses on three main themes: dyadic coping, health behavior in a dyadic (or couples') context, and informal caregiving.

Personal goals and goal adjustment
Well-being of (future) health-care professionals
Longitudinal cohort studies

Being diagnosed with a chronic illness can have a far-reaching impact on people's psychological well-being. But why do some patients deal with the consequences of an illness better than others? Studying personal goal pursuit and goal adjustment gives us insight into this question. Related questions are: Which goals are important for patients, and what happens when they are nog longer attainable? And how can we help patients succesfully adjust to their illness? Aiming to answer these, and related, questions, is the main focus of my current research.

Additionally, I am transfering my knowledge concerning goals from a psycho-oncology setting, to an educational setting. In a longitudinal cohort study, we are currently studying personal goals and well-being of medical students. With this study, we aim to identify factors which can ensure a healthy future health-care professional, as well as a sustainable health-care system.

As a psychologist and researcher, I am interested in topics around creativity, flow and coaching. The overarching theme in my work is creating an optimal fit between the individual’s needs and the work context, to optimize work outcomes.  

For creativity and brainstorming, I'm interested in the way in which sharing ideas helps or harms people's creativity, which will likely differ per person. Whereas novel and flexible ideas will be beneficial for some, others' creativity and productivity will benefit more from everyday and structured ideas. 

For flow, I'm interested in how flow experiences help to reach your full potential, and how such an experience adds to your (creative) performance.

Coming from a background in pediatric nursing and social sciences I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in Health Psychology where I do research on (the underlying mechanisms of) psychological adaptation of children, adolescents and young adults with a somatic disease and their parents.

I am inherently interested in the phenomenon of positive adaptation which I came across when I worked as a nurse with very ill children, during my PhD in children with cancer, and in India where I am involved in research activities for an NGO that provides healthcare and education for the poorest of the poor who live on the streets of Kolkata (Calcutta).

My current rearch focuses on:
- Selfregulation: goal adjustment, benefit-finding/post-traumatic growth
- Goal conflict

I have a strong interest in cross-cultural research.

Field / Discipline
I'm a social psychologist, specialized in psycho-oncology and health psychology. I work at the department of Health Psychology, in the lab of Prof. Mariët Hagedoorn, 'Intimate relationships in the face of illness'.My research is focused on differences in adaptation to cancer or other health challenges between single and partnered patients. I'm interested in whether single survivors differ from those with a partner with respect to  the support they receive, distress level, sexuality, self-esteem and body image. I also focus on whether a partner can be involved to help with a more healthy lifestyle (e.g. quitting smoking) and better quality of life.
