My project applies a multilevel approach in order to investigate subtypes individuals based on psychopathic tendencies in the general population. By combining behavioral measures, electrophysiology and (epi)genetics we aim to get insight into the characteristics of different psychopathic/antisocial profiles present in the community.
- Identify profiles of psychopathic and antisocial behavior in offender and community samples.
- Investigate the link between psychopathic personality traits on electrophysiological correlates related to affective processing and social economic decision-making.
- Identify (epi)genetic markers related to psychopathy by investigating gene expression levels and DNA methylation of genes that are involved in learning and decision-making

I finished my bachelor in Psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam, followed by a research master in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior on a research project that investigated the influence of nutrition on cognition and behaviour. In 2016, I started my PhD project at the Donders Institute on a project that is part of a collaboration between the SAMBA group (Dr. Brazil) and the Translational Psychiatry group (Dr. Glennon).
