Personal profile

Personal information

I am a PhD candidate at the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI) - department of Management and Organization. I graduated from the Research Master Business in Society in 2017, which is a joint-degree of the VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam. Prior to this, is studied Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Amsterdam University College. 


My research focuses on organizational leadership and employee wellbeing. Over the past years, my research interest has shifted in particular to the temporal dynamics of these two topics and their (dynamic)relationship. In my PhD project I focus on the interpersonal dynamics in Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) theory, which aims to specify how the relationship between a leader and follower emerges from their interactions over time and how different development scenarios relate to employee wellbeing and performance. Additionally, I am involved in various projects on employee wellbeing that focus on chronic stress and burnout at work. By focussing on the temporal dynamics and explaining howphenomena develop over time, my research is also particularly relevant for practitioners. 


In my research I like to take an interdisciplinary approach by for example using insights and methods from the natural sciences and using these to create new insight in (social-) psychological phenomena. Over the past years, I grew particularly fond of the Dynamic Systems Approach and also started to learn more about the person-centred approach. I am an entrepreneurial spirit who wants to stimulate the translation of scientific insight into practical implications with the aim of making employees healthier and happier at work.


In the pre-master Business Administration I teach Quantitative Research Methods and Academic Paper writing. Furthremore, I supervise various master thesis projects. Additionally, I am course coordinator of- and lecturer in the course 'Developing theories about the social world: A dynamic systems approach', which is part of the VU Gradute Winter School.
