René Freichel

After graduating from Humboldt University of Berlin in 2016 with a BSC in Psychology, I moved to the Netherlands to complete both the Research Master Psychology and the Behavioral Data Science Master program at the University of Amsterdam. My PhD research focuses on the role of executive functioning as a transdiagnostic risk factor for the development
of psychopathology. We also aim to understand how cognitive control plays into short- and long-term symptom dynamics. For my research, I use a range of methods, including large-scale panel cohort studies, ecological momentary assessment, and online/lab-experiments. I work under the supervision of Reinout Wiers, Ilya Veer, Janna Cousijn, Ingmar Franken, and Peter de Jong.
