Profile

Monique Smeets is in 1995 gepromoveerd aan de Universiteit Utrecht op onderzoek naar de visuele perceptie en visuele voorstelling van het eigen lichaam bij patiënten met anorexia nervosa.

Na afloop van de promotie heeft zij in de Verenigde Staten onderzoekservaring opgedaan onder andere op het gebied van de cognitieve neurowetenschappen en sensorische psychologie (van geur en smaak) aan Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (Baton Rouge, LA) en Monell Chemical Senses Center (Philadelphia, PA). Sinds 2004 is zij werkzaam aan de Universiteit Utrecht. In 2011 werd zijn benoemd tot profileringshoogleraar op de leerstoel Sensorische Systemen in Sociale Context voor 1 dag in de week. Sinds 2016 is zij hoogleraar Onderzoek van dezelfde leerstoel. Monique is daarnaast 4 dagen in de week werkzaam als senior onderzoeker bij Unilever R&D in Vlaardingen. De leerstoel beoogt onder meer een brug te slaan tussen universiteit en industrie in een onderlinge afstemming van onderzoek.

Nadruk van het huidige onderzoek ligt op de reuk in relatie tot sociale communicatie.

In de uitoefening van haar onderzoek leeft Monique de gedragscodes,zoals gesteld in VSNU Code Wetenschapsbeoefening 2004-2014, Gedragscode persoonsgegevens VSNU en Universitair beleidskader Onderzoeksdata, na.

Monique received her Masters degree in experimental psychology from the University of Amsterdam in 1990 and completed her PhD at Utrecht University in 1995. The topic of the thesis was body image disturbance in anorexia nervosa. In 1996 she obtained a stipend from the Niels Stensen Stichting which enabled her to spend time as a postdoctoral fellow in visual neuroscience working with Prof Stephen Kosslyn at Harvard University. In the years that followed she gradually shifted her research focus to the chemical senses, specifically smell, when working at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia under the supervision of Dr. Pamela Dalton. This is where she developed her fascination for the topic.

In 2002 she returned to the Netherlands to join one of the research centers at Wageningen University. In 2004 Monique moved to Utrecht University where she held positions as assistant, associate and full professor and continued her chemosensory work with the support of a Vidi grant.

In her dual affiliation, Monique sees herself as linking pin between industry and university progressing our understanding of olfaction from a fundamental as well as applied perspective. She hopes to one day be part of the unravelling of how smell works: all the way from the molecule to receptor to brain, perception and action.
