My background is in Psychology. In 2012, I finished my PhD thesis on the subject of cost-effectiveness of behavioral interventions.
Since November 2014, I work as a post doc researcher on the project ‘Data teams’. My research is about the functioning and sustainability of these teams. What are the effects and what can be done to enhance these effects? Which psychological factors are important for data-based decision making among teachers? What makes these data teams sustainable within the organization of the school? Additionally, my research focus is on networked professional learning communities (PLCs). In a national research project, 23 PLCs are followed for four years to examine the effects, influencing factors and processes on teachers' professional development.
