    My research focuses on decision-making in ADHD. Individuals with ADHD tend to engage in more risky decision making in real life. We study underlying mechanisms, explaining this enhanced risk taking. We focus on cognitive decision making strategies, hormones, heart rate and sleep problems.

    Next to my research, I work at de Bascule, which is an academic institution for child- and adolescent psychiatry. As a therapist, I work with children and adolescents, mainly with disruptive behavioral disorders. 

    For an impression of my work at De Bascule, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68l6kDAs9bM

    My aim is to keep improving the connection between research and clinical practice.
