About me

I am a PhD Candidate at the Centre of Urban Mental Health in cooperation with the Amsterdam UMC and the Department of Psychological Methods at the University of Amsterdam. In addition, I study Mathematics in the Bachelor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My interest lies in approaching psychological phenomena from a complex system perspective which includes developing statistical methods and applying them to clinical phenomena such as population mental health.
