Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.
My project is supervised by Dr. M.J. Schroevers, Prof. Dr. A.V. Ranchor and Dr. J. Fleer.

During my master, I researched the influence of goal conflict, goal adjustment, and personality on the levels of burnout of medical students at the University of Groningen.
Currently, as a Ph.D., I continue working with medical students, this time, designing an intervention to address their burnout levels.

I set up a research project to learn more about the academic development of high achieving Bachelor’s students (i.e. honours students and non-honours students who belong to the best 10% of their degree programme). The goal of this research is to measure the learning interests and preferences of high achieving Bachelor’s students and to follow the interdisciplinary learning gains of an honours programme. The outcomes of this research project might contribute to the further development of interdisciplinary education and honours programmes. Policy Officer Education (Office of the University)
I work for the Strategy Department of Education & Research as a policy officer and am responsible for policy issues concerning minor programmes.
My second research line addresses the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of psychological screening and interventions and the underlying mechanisms of change, with a specific focus on individual Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
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.
