My job at PEARL
I am one of the embedded scientists at PEARL and a PhD student at Codarts Rotterdam.
My work focusses specifically on the mental health of performing artists and athletes. My PhD project is about the mental part of dance injuries: are there any specific mental risk factors for injuries, and how does your mental health impact your recovery process and vice versa. I try to connect the physical part of health with our mental health, in order to show that both are very important to become a top athlete or performer.
Within Codarts I’m part of the Student Life Monitor team and help execute physical tests and distribute questionnaires.
I am fascinated by…
Every talent who has the dream to become a top athlete or performer and is willing to do whatever it takes. I’m always so inspired by their determination, focus and mental strength!
I’m a sport psychologist who’s working with a diverse group of athletes. I just finished my post-academic study sport psychology at the VU University in Amsterdam. Besides that I’m working on improving my own health and love to visit and learn about a broad variety of sports.
