Meet the team #4 Anne

What is your name?

Anne Tjepkema

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.
