Researcher, PhD candidate, passionate plant mom, fitness buff, people person, suffers from an optimism bias, ESFJ and enneagram type 2. Especially keen on translational science; it's time we burst the bubble!!!
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
I'm currently a PhD candidate at Radboud University Nijmegen, prior to which I did my bachelor's in Psychology at Ashoka University in India and the research master's in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. Through internships and research projects during my studies, I developed a keen interest in intervention science and addiction, with a strong background in methodology.
Growing up in India, I saw a stark contrast between the need for mental health resources and the lack thereof. Through technology we can go miles bridging the gap and I'm currently attempting to do my part. As part of my PhD, we're (re-)designing HitnRun, a smartphone game to help youth quit smoking using the user-centred approach and I'm loving every part of the process. Right from the multidisciplinary perspectives in our team to engaging with the target group and societal stakeholders as we work toward an effective, engaging, and fun intervention! Stay tuned for HitnRun 2.0 :)
