Research Projects

  1. Bridging the gap between science and clinical practice using personalized analyses and e-health applications (iLab,; Therap-i, PETRA, I found that ESM can only be successfully implemented in clinical practice when, in line with what clinicians do, ESM items and feedback are personalized. In my ongoing Therap-i RCT we use not-fully automated tools for monitoring and subsequently creating personalized feedback as add-on to psychological care-as-usual for severely depressed patients. This study inspired the development of the PETRA tool. PETRA is a smart tool guiding clinicians in integrating personalized EMA during regular consultations. PETRA is available in the Patient Health Record (PHR) in eight mental health care institutions, including our own department of psychiatry.
  2. Investigating the course of depression and anxiety disorders over a period of several years in The Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA,
  3. Complex dynamical system theory and its application to psychopathology using individual time-series experiments (TRANS-ID,
  4. Psychophysiology (e.g. heart rate variability) in relation to mental health
  5. The neuroticism personality trait as a vulnerability factor in the course of common mental disorders
