Her focus lies with the project ‘Brainlinks’, where she works with participants at the LUMC as a MRI lisence holder. Iris is responsible for the supervision the communication with participants and also supervises the hormone data collection. She also recently started to develop and set up co-evaluation sessions with former participants of the ‘Brainlinks’ project, through which she tries to bring fundamental science and societal value closer together by including the adolescents in answering questions about for example the outreach strategy. Last year, she also collaborated with the SYNC lab to work on some of the COVID-19 well-being projects, mainly by datamonitoring and data cleaning. 

Iris just finished the Research Master at Leiden University, where she specialised in Developmental Psychology. For her research internship and thesis, she investigated the effects of childhood parental death on adult attachment styles.
