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.
