I started as a researcher in safety at DSP-groep in March 2019.
I was fascinated by everything to do with safety from an early age. I enjoy nothing more than dealing with so many different complex issues in the field of security, justice, and public order in my work. Because we deal with such a variety of studies at DSP-groep, I can combine my knowledge of psychology, criminology and international law.


I studied Clinical Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Amsterdam. During my study, I volunteered at Victim Support Netherlands and the crisis shelter Meisa Amsterdam. I also worked as a research assistant for the University of Amsterdam. I had a supporting role in studying implicit and explicit associations of male sex offenders towards women. We conducted this research in collaboration with several Dutch forensic psychiatric institutions (the Oostvaarderskliniek, De Waag and Van der Hoeven Kliniek).
I completed my master’s in Criminal Investigation Criminology with Research Track at the University of Amsterdam. For my research internship at the Faculty of Law at VU Amsterdam, I investigated a legal misstep by a Dutch government body. In 2018 I left for Turin to follow a master’s degree in Transnational Crime and Justice at the University for Peace in collaboration with the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute.
