I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology, Education & Child Studies at ESSB. I am interested in why some children develop anxiety disorders, while others do not. I focus on neural and behavioral correlates of attention bias and social stress in relation to anxiety. More specifically, I study social and neural moderators of the temperament-anxiety association using Generation R data, as part of my Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship. Before, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health in the USA with Dr. Daniel Pine and Prof. Nathan Fox. I led several fMRI and behavioral studies with children with and without anxiety disorders and analyzed data from a 16-year longitudinal fMRI study. I have received my PhD in Developmental Psychology from Leiden University. My dissertation focused on delineating electrophysiological endophenotypes of social anxiety disorder.
