On November 21st, 2021 I, Joanneke Weerdmeester, completed my PhD journey! 

If you are interested in reading my doctoral thesis entitled: "Take a DEEP Breath: Exploring the Potential of Game-based Biofeedback Interventions for Anxiety Regulation" you can download it here.

In addition, if you would like to witness me actively trying to regulate my own anxiety, you can watch the livestream of my public defence here

If you want to learn more about DEEP, the VR biofeedback videogame that I helped to validate and further develop, you can watch a short trailer below or you can visit the DEEP website.  

And if you want to see what I'm up to now you can visit my company website to see what awesome projects I'm currently working on! 

To all the people who have stood by me and that I have personaly or professionally connected with in these past couple of years; thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my PhD adventure!
