Hello and welcome! I am a PhD-candidate at Tilburg University, Department of Methods and Statistics, and University of Amsterdam, Department of Psychological Methods (Psychosystems Lab Group), both located in the Netherlands.  My research is focused on estimating interdisciplinary relationships, in particular concerning (clinical) psychological and biological variables. For this I combine graphical models (also know as network approach) with component analysis.

This PhD-project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and European Research Council (ERC). My (co-)promotors are Katrijn Van Deun and Jeroen Vermunt from Tilburg, and Lourens Waldorp and Denny Borsboom from Amsterdam.

Outiside of work I enjoy hiking, baking, sauna, Gongkwon Yusul (Korean mix martial arts), and Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword fighting).
