project leader and coordinator- Pharmacy Game international
In the first 15 years of my academic career, I focused on investigating (1) (predictors of) wellbeing and adjustment in people with a chronic illness and (2) the effectiveness of psychological screening- and intervention in reducing distress/depression in chronically ill. Psychological theories on stress-coping and self-regulation guided my work and I used a wide range of different research designs to answer my research questions (e.g. longitudinal, diary, RCTs, qualitative). Since 2015, I also use my research expertise to investigate coping with stress and personal development in the context of (medical) education. This research line is embeded in SCOPE, the UMCG center of expertise on personal leadership development (SCOPE website). I am also the initiator and academic lead of the Teaching Academy Groningen (TAG) Community of Practice (CoP) on Wellbeing, aimed at creating a breeding ground for educational knowledge and expertise that helps foster wellbeing among students and staff at the UG (link). In 2020 I was appointed as adjunct professor within the UMCG talent track (impact profile Education).

Policy Advisor Dean Faculty of Arts

Within the Faculty of Arts, I work as advisor/secretary to the dean. My work focuses on advising on national policy issues related to the humanities discipline.

I am secretary of the Disciplineoverleg Letteren en Geesteswetenschappen (Discipline Consultation Committee for the Arts and Humanities, DLG), which consists of the deans of all Faculties of Arts and Humanities in the Netherlands. I coordinate the national implementation of the Sectorplan Geesteswetenschappen (Humanities Sector Plan), administrative processes around the 16 national research schools and coordination with relevant discussion partners, for example the SSH Council, Ministry of Education and NWO (Dutch Research Council).


PhD-student research group Higher Education (FBSS)

Title: Interdisciplinary Understanding in Higher Education

In recent years, higher education institutes have developed more and more interdisciplinary education programmes (in the Dutch context). These programmes aim, among other things, to teach students interdisciplinary understanding, translated into knowledge and skills that make it possible to cross disciplinary borders and contribute to complex solving. 

In this PhD trajectory, we investigate the acquisition of interdisciplinary understanding by Bachelor's students who follow an interdisciplinary honours programme. We develop an instrument that measures interdisciplinary understanding, investigate which students participate in interdisciplinary education and their propensity for interdisciplinary understanding, examine what the interdisciplinary learning process looks like according to students and teachers and measure the extent to which students aquire interdisciplinary understanding over the period of a 3-year education programme. 

The research is conducted within the context of the Honours College of the University of Groningen and among high-achieving students who choose not to follow an interdisciplinary honours programme (control group).
