Lines of research

The central theme in most of my research is to understand cognitive processes in normal and abnormal eating behaviour. I approach this topic using multiple methods, ranging from cognitive psychological to neuroscientific methods. While most of my research is fundamental in nature, I also have a research line focused on a clinical application. This research is conducted in close collaboration with my PhD students, and interested master students also often join. Within this central theme I developed three lines of research:

  • Research on food reward processing in the brain (fMRI). My development of this line started in 2006, and addresses (1) overweight – healthy-weight differences in cue elicited reward processing, (2) neural correlates of the effects of cue-exposure with response prevention, and (3) the effects of task and mindset (e.g., focus on palatability or on caloric value) on food-reward processing.
  • Cognitive processing of food cues: with my background as a cognitive experimental psychologist I have ample experience in developing cognitive paradigms for research questions within the field of eating research. My focus was initially on implicit measures of association, but has now shifted to attentional bias for high caloric foods. In this research line as well, my main interest at the moment is the effect of attentional set on biased attention, and how this may interact with weight and restraint status.
  • Research line on the development of a self-learning E-Coach for weight loss: in this project we aim to develop a self-learning E-Coach for weight loss based on principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This project is  a collaboration between psychologists and engineers (experts on data mining techniques and machine learning).

These three lines of research were all represented in a public lecture that I gave in the Hague, which was organized by the National Initiative Brain & Cognition (NWO).

Teaching

Extensive teaching experience, ranging from small-group tutoring to coordinating large-scale (> 300 students) first-year courses and coordinating specialized master’s courses. Much of my teaching has focused on research methodology, both at the bachelor’s and the master’s level. I am the coordinator of the psychopathology track of the research master Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience. Outside Maastricht University, I am the chair of the educational committee of the national/Flemish research school Experimental Psychopathology, responsible for the teaching program of PhD students.
