What is your name?
Can you tell something about yourself?
I am finishing my last year of the bachelor Psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam. I am in my 4th year right now, as I took extra subjects in my previous year instead of starting an internship.
What is your role at the NOFA lab?
I’m a bachelor intern at the lab, which means I take several tests with subjects in the Cannabis Use Disorder study and also work on recruiting new subjects. Apart from my work in the lab, I work on my bachelor’s thesis.
What is your main research interest/topic?
I am mostly interested in the connection between self-medicating cannabis use behavior and depression and/or anxiety, so I will be writing my thesis on this subject within the study. Psychiatric disorders, addiction and self-medicating behavior or medication in general are within my field of interest.
Is there anything else we should know about you?
I have a 7-year old daughter and 3 cats. I love drawing portraits in my spare time.
