Meet the team #6 Stefanie

What is your name?

Stefanie van den Brink

Can you tell something about yourself?

I am currently in my fourth year of the bachelor psychobiology. I am mostly interested in the psychology side of the study and that is why I am doing an extra year as a trajectory towards the master clinical psychology.

What is your role at the NOFA lab?

I am a bachelor intern on the Joint Study at the NOFA which is cross-cultural and uses neuroimaging. As an intern, my help is required with testing, recruitment, and calling of the participants for the research.

What is your main research interest/topic?

I am mostly interested in the relationship between cannabis use disorder and anxiety. Since anxiety and cannabis disorder have a bidirectional relation in which cannabis is used to relieve anxiety but it can also cause anxiety, I am interested to learn more about this.

Is there anything else we should know about you?

I like to play piano
