About me

I am a PhD candidate at the Behavioural Science Institute of the Radboud University Nijmegen. I have a master’s degree in Pedagogical Sciences and worked at a youth care facility before starting my PhD. During my clinical master I wrote a thesis on whether video games can be used to foster social skills among young adolescents. My doctoral research focuses on the development and testing of video games for the prevention of depression in youth.

    Social Games as Prevention Tools for Depression in Young Adolescents

    About the project

    In my PhD project I study social games for the prevention of depression. In my project I take part in both the development and testing of games. I want to use video games to help youth become more emotionally resilient and to decrease the stigma that surrounds depression. I do this in close collaboration with other researchers and game designers. I am particularly interested in games that are played in a social context, because I believe that both social threat and social support are key factors in the development and maintenance of depression.
