Research projects HSRI
Our researchers share the goal to conduct excellent research and are strongly driven by scientific curiosity. In our research projects, we combine expertise and knowledge across departments to investigate complex societal problems in a more integral way.
Adaptive Societies, Organizations, and Workers
Understanding vaccination hesitancy by studying irregular individuals [PhD Project]
Dr. Florian van Leeuwen and his colleagues examine irregular individuals, that is, individuals who favor (or oppose) vaccination despite having traits and identities that make them likely to oppose (or favor) vaccination.

The project team will conduct an intensive longitudinal study on environmental and individual factors and processes of personality development during the work transition.
Who remains childless? [Seed Funding]
Dr. Ivanova and Dr. van Scheppingen combine insights from personality psychology and family sociology to elucidate why some individuals among a contemporary cohort of Dutch adults do not become parents.
The transition to parenthood: individual variability in well-being [PhD Project]

Dr. Ruth Mark and her colleagues hope to improve the early diagnosis of dementia.
A lifestyle tool for health behaviours in Type 2 diabetes [Seed Funding]
Dr. Soedamah-Muthu and Dr. Mark aim to establish which factors are required to develop a lifestyle tool based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy principles.

Dr. Lars de Vroege and Prof. Dr. Willem Kop will evaluate the added value of CRT compared to the standard-of-care treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy.
Patterns of fatigue in patients with benign and malignant brain tumors [Seed Funding]
This research project investigates latent patterns of fatigue in patients with brain tumors before start of treatment, and their relationship with disease and patient characteristics.
Automated risk stratification for infectious complications in immunodeficiency [PhD project]
Using natural langue processing techniques, we will improve the timely detection of increased infectious risk in patients treated with immunomodulatory drugs.
Life after Trauma [PhD Project]
The aim of this project is to increase the understanding of differences in patterns of physical, psychological and social recovery within and between trauma patients.
