My current research can be summarized in three related research lines: (1) emotional reactivity and emotion regulation (e.g., how do people respond to daily life experiences and how do they regulate their emotional responses), (2) improving Experience Sampling research (e.g., developing guidelines and best practices, improving measurement), and (3) personalized Experience Sampling interventions to improve mental health and well-being (e.g., providing personalized lifestyle advice to individuals with loss of pleasure). In my research I focus on what can go wrong (e.g., relations with internalizing problems) but also on how people can thrive (i.e., positive emotions, positive emotion regulation).
I am track coordinator of the master track Positive Psychology and Well-being. Within this master track, I supervise students in writing their master thesis, and I am coordinator of the course Assessment & Interventions. In the bachelor, I teach the course Development of Talent & Motivation.
