Personal Statement

I am an assistant professor at the department of Epidemiology of the Erasmus MC University Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where I am the principal investigator for psychiatric epidemiology. My research focusses on common psychiatric diseases such as insomnia, depression and anxiety, and I have a particular in the role of sleep in mental and physical health. To explore these, and other associations, I work with data from two population-based cohorts, the Rotterdam Study, which assesses age-related disease in persons of 40 years and older, and Generation-R, a birth cohort.

 

I have an additional interest in the use of digital treatment of psychological disorders, my previous work at the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi) at the University of Oxford, where I currently hold a position as an Honorary Senior Reseearch Fellow in Sleep Medicine. My work at Oxford focusses specifically on the effectiveness and use of digital treatment for insomnia, such as digital cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and the effects beyond sleep, such as quality of life, mental health and cognition
