Personal information

Fiona Hagenbeek (1989) is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Biological Psychology and the Netherlands Twin Register (NTR) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where she also obtained her PhD. During her PhD she pursued two related research lines. First, she investigated the link between genetics and metabolomics by studying the contribution of genes and environment to blood metabolite levels in adult populations. Second, she focused on biomarker discovery for (childhood) aggression. As part of the EU-funded ACTION project (Aggression in Children: Unraveling gene-environment interplay to inform Treatment and InterventiON strategies), she developed protocols for the collection of urine and buccal-cell samples in children (http://www.action-euproject.eu/content/data-protocols). She applied these protocols in a large cohort of twin children of the NTR and obtained genome-wide SNP and DNA methylation data from the buccal cells and urinary metabolites from three metabolomics platforms. With these datasets, she contributed to genetic, epigenetic, and metabolomic efforts for the discovery of omics markers for (childhood) aggression. Her current research focuses on integrating transmitted and non-transmitted polygenic scores together with DNA methylation and metabolomics data to investigate the intergenerational transmission of (externalizing) behavior problems in children.
