Margot Peeters received in 2009 her Research Master degree (Behavioral Science Institute) at the Radboud University of Nijmegen.

In 2014 she received her PhD degree (Cum Laude) at the University of Utrecht (UU; prof. Wilma Vollebergh and prof. Reinout Wiers) focusing on the development of alcohol and substance use in (at-risk) adolescents.

From 2014 to 2017 she was a post-doc within the Consortium on Indivdual Development.

Currently, she is Associate Professor at the department of Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts (UU) studying the development of risk behavior (e.g. alcohol use, drugs use, externalizing behavior, gaming) with a special interest for health inequalities during adolescence and young adulthood. She is particularly interested in how risk behavior differs between individuals and how varying social contexts and systems influence engagement in risk behavior.
