I am a postdoc at the Methods and Statistics department (faculty of Social Sciences) at Utrecht University. Having graduated from the M&S research masters programme at Utrecht University in 2015, I received a Talent Grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) to undertake a PhD project under the supervision of Ellen Hamaker. I succesfully defended my dissertation (Dynamic Systems and Casual Structures in Psychology: Connecting Data and Theory) cum laude on October 30th 2020.
My research touches on diverse fields such as differential equation modeling, time-series analysis, stochastic processes, formal approaches to causal inference, complex systems analysis and theory formalization. Primarily I’m interested in how to apply these different frameworks to study psychological phenomena, with a focus on clinical psychology.
