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.
In my spare time I'm a keen photographer (I own both digital and analogue cameras), traveler, board game fanatic, and book lover.
