I am a PhD student at the University Medical Center Groningen and Rob Giel Research Center Groningen, The Netherlands.
My research focuses on the implementation of experience sampling methodology (ESM) in clinical practice. With ESM, patients can track their moods, symptoms, behaviors, and contexts throughout
their daily lives. Using complex time series analyses, patterns in those data can be uncovered that may also have utility for clinical practice.
My aim is to find out how exactly ESM can be applied in clinical practice. Thus far, my research is transdiagnostic, with a special focus on patients with bipolar disorder and
patients experiencing first psychosis. I use both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
I'm currently developing a diary tool that will be implemented in clinical practice, find out more under Implementation.
In my spare time I play waterpolo, learn to work with precious metals, and read a lot of books.
