Profiel

Margot Peeters is Assistant Professor at the department of Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts studying individual differences and social processes that underlie change and development in adolescents' (risk) behavior. Her research focuses on the influence of behavioral control and the social context in relation to the development of adolescents' risk behavior (e.g. alcohol use, drugs use, externalizing behavior, gaming). 

She has a special interest for longitudinal analyzing techniques (e.g. latent transition, zero inflated, survival analysis, missing data analysis, Bayesian statistics) to study the development of adolescents in the most optimal way.

Curriculum vitae

Margot Peeters (1984) received in 2007 her Bachelor degree in Educational Science and in 2009 her Research Master degree (Behavioral Science Institute) both at the Radboud University of Nijmegen. In 2009 she started with her PhD project examining the role of automatic and controlled proces in the onset and continuation of alcohol use in (at-risk) adolescents, supervised by Wilma Vollebergh (Utrecht University) and Reinout Wiers (University of Amsterdam). In 2014 she received her PhD degree (Cum Laude) at the University of Utrecht. Currently, she is Assistant Professor at the department of Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts studying social and cognitve processes in adolescents' development with a special interest for the development of behavioral control. Her research includes studying individual differences and influences of the social context that may underlie change and development in adolescents' (risk) behavior (e.g. alcohol use, drugs use, externalizing behavior, gaming). 

She has a special interest for longitudinal analyzing techniques (e.g. latent transition, zero inflated, survival analysis, missing data analysis, Bayesian statistics) to study the development of adolescents in the most efficient way.

Project:
Playful VR and AR experiences for social inclusion 03-10-2016 tot 01-11-2017
Algemene projectbeschrijving

This project addresses if and how VR/AR can help people dealing with permanent or temporary situations of social isolation by providing them an opportunity to escape from the limited space in which they are confined and to reintegrate in the society beyond isolation. The seed money invested in this project is used to build a strong consortium of international partners necessary to address the related challenging research questions and to support the writing of a high quality research proposal.
