Hello! I work as an information specialist for the faculty of BMS, and I also support open-access projects and tasks UT-wide. Below I describe my roles in more detail:
Together with my colleague Marit van Eck, we are contact points for questions or support needs regarding scientific information. For example, we can help with:
- Systematic literature reviews
- Writing of scientific articles
- Publishing Open Access
- Accessing and evaluating (scientific) information
I support Nicole Loorbach, our open-access specialist, in the various projects and tasks needed to realize the university's goal of reaching 100% open access. If you wish to know more about how we strive to do this, please visit www.utwente.nl/openaccess. Of course, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions (email@example.com).
Professionally, I have a background in psychology with two specialisations. One in the area of sports and exercise psychology (mental performance) and another in the multidisciplinary area of eHealth (supporting health and wellbeing through technology). I am currently working part-time to finish my PhD dissertation, which is about supporting self-care of chronic diseases via eHealth technologies.
Personally, I have an overarching interest in how individuals can learn to self-regulate their own behaviour. I believe self-management is the best medicine and that skills such as goal-setting are a fine art that can guide and regulate our pursuit of success, happiness, and self-realization.
For my PhD I was granted a scholarship from the Mexican National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT, in Spanish) to carry out my research at the University of Twente, from 2017 to 2021. The research topic is about eHealth technologies aiming to support the self-management behaviours of patients with chronic diseases. My promotors are prof. dr. Lisette van Gemert-Pijnen and prof. dr. Robbert Sanderman. Our approach is focused on learning from the existing body of knowledge (frameworks, models, and theories) to facilitate the development and implementation of effective eHealth interventions across different populations and cultural contexts.
