My interests lie in the automatic analysis and understanding of verbal and nonverbal (vocal) behavior in psychiatric disorders. Using methods from linguistic computing, I aim to develop tools that can recognize and display signals of mental disorder. Coming from a background in linguistics and medicine, my main focus is on analysing language cues of psychotic disorders.

I am currently employed at the University Medical Center Groningen, where I work on my PhD on language disturbances in psychosis, and at the University Medical Center Utrecht where I am a psychiatry resident.
