  • Profile

    I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Centre for Urban Mental Health (University of Amsterdam). I focus on modeling the dynamic interactions between psychological symptoms, substance use, and the factors influencing them. I aim to integrate personalized monitoring (experience sampling method) and derived personalized statistics into treatment for addiction and comorbid mental health problems, to personalize treatment and improve outcomes. Amongts other methods, I am particularly interested in personalized network analysis. I work at the Department of Communication Science (Persuasive Communication Research Group), and at the Department of Psychology (Developmental Psychopatology and Psychological Methods Research Groups). I am supervised by Prof. Reinout Wiers, Prof. Julia van Weert, Dr. Sacha Epskamp and Dr. Barbara Schouten.
