Research Interests

As part of my doctoral thesis, I am focusing on risk factors for bipolar disorder and how they are associated with morphometric changes in the brain. For my masters thesis, I focused on the effects of diet on depression and how differents types of reviews are associated with different types of conclusions about the benefits of diet on depression.


I studied psychology at the University of Groningen (B.Sc) from 2013-2016 and at Leiden University (M.Sc., research) from 2017-2019. In August 2020 I started my PhD in the DFG-FOR 2107.
