Personal profile

Roles and responsibilities

At UWA, I have an honorary appointment for the School of Psychological Science. At Tilburg university I have an assistant prof position at the department of social psychology.

 

I am an organizational researcher and team player with project management experience. I thrive under pressure while aiming for quality and realistic expectations. I have an interest in two areas: 1) creative measurement approaches for personnel recruitment, selection, and assessment and 2) the engagement of volunteer workers. I like to learn new things, explore opportunities with a positive attitude, and value relationships over anything else. 

 

After working as a personnel selection and assessment consultant for NOA bv I completed my PhD in 2016. In my PhD I studied the assessment of contextualized personality and vocational interests. Directly after completing my PhD I moved to Australia where I worked as a postdoctoral researcher on a large volunteer recruitment and engagement project for four years. Please see my LinkedIn page for a detailed resume.
