Research interests

In 2014 I completed a double undergraduate degree in clinical psychology and developmental psychology at the University of Amsterdam. I obtained my Master’s degree at the University of Kent in 2016 with my research focussing on social and cognitive development in infancy.

I started my PhD at the University of Kent in September 2017 and my research is focused on typical and atypical development in infancy. Specifically, I am studying early markers for Autism Spectrum Disorder in the first year of life. I am interested in all aspects of development (emotional, social and cognitive) and I would like to contribute to more naturalistic research methods to study development. In my research I primarily use eye-tracking, but I am interested in combining this with more qualitative research methods such as conversation analysis.
