My current research explores how individuals, teams, and organizations effectively share information under high time pressure, uncertainty, and risk of disruptions and crises. Some of the contexts where I have conducted my research are virtual hackathons and critical infrastructure organizations (NWO project 1, project 2). I primarily work with digital communication data and apply social network analysis to understand how information-sharing patterns affect the team and organizational performance and resilience.
For creativity and brainstorming, I'm interested in the way in which people come to optimal creativite performance, which differs per person. For example, 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 and working from your core qualities helps to reach your full potential, and how such an experience adds to your (creative) performance.
Next to my work as an assistant professor, I work as a coach and trainer via my company Groeiflow, further bridging theory and practice. Here, I help people to experience more flow and creativity and in their personal and professional development.

Education: In addition, I'm working for SCOPE; the center of expertise of personal development, in the UMCG. We develop and provide education related to student's personal and professional development. Topics addressed are, amongst others, socialisation, professional identity development, values, core qualities and keeping a healthy balance in life. Our education is experiental-oriented, aiming to reach another way of learning by using interactive and creative teaching methods. From a mere cognitive focus back to experiencing, gaining insights about yourself and your social context, and being inspired.
Research: I have finished my PhD thesis in the domain of educational and organizational change. I am fascinated with change in organisations; how people respond, the dynamics that occur, and the complexities of organizing change for those in charge, the change leaders. My PhD thesis particularly focuses on the complexities of organizing change in medical schools' undergraduate curricula.
Topics PhD thesis: undergraduate curriculum change, medical education, complexity, challenges and strategies of change leaders, situational awareness, governance, the role of local institutional contexts in international curriculum development projects.
