Profile

Research

In 2006, I started working on a PhD project on habits and implementation intentions at the Self-Regulation Lab. The research conducted during my PhD centered around the question of whether specific if-then plans (implementation intentions) can be used to overrule unwanted automatic behaviors (i.e., habits). In my dissertation, I investigated cognitive as well as behavioral effects of implementation intentions and I identified several boundary conditions of implementation intentions’ effectiveness when competing with existing automatic tendencies.

In 2010, I was appointed as an Assistant Professor and since 2016 I am working as an Associate Professor at the Self-Regulation Lab. From January 2012 until August 2017 I worked on a VENI project (grant awarded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) investigating the immediate and long-term psychological consequences of nonconsciously activated behavior. In my current research projects I am still interested in the interplay between conscious and nonconscious processes on behavior, and in particular in the way people deal with or interpret nonconsciously activated behavior when this behavior is indicative of self-regulation failure.

Over the past few years I have supervised several PhD-projects, such a project investigating whether the combination of cue-monitoring and implementation intentions can be effective in breaking unhealthy eating habits (Verhoeven). Moreover, I supervised a PhD-project examining the effectiveness of a self-regulation intervention that includes planning as one of its central components in initiating and maintaining a healthier diet in an overweight sample (Vinkers). I was also a supervisor on a PhD-project investigating how to promote healthy food choices under conditions of low self-control (Salmon). Presently, I am advisor on 2 PhD-projects within the HINTS consortium (van Gestel & van Rookhuijzen) and on 1 PhD and a Post-doc project on the psychological consequences of nudging (Wachner & Marchiori).

Teaching

I am involved as a coordinator and lecturer in the Research Master “Social and Health Psychology” (e.g., the course Integrative Practicum I) as well as in the Bachelor and Master program of Health Psychology (e.g., the master course Health Promotion). Throughout the year, I supervise students’ Bachelor and (Research) Master theses and internships.

Project:
Health Improvement Through Nudging Techniques (HINTS)
01.09.2016 to 01.09.2020
General project description 

The overall aim of the HINTS research program is to gain more insight into nudges as novel techniques for health promotion. The proposed program aims to identify and investigate effects and impact of nudges to promote healthy diets in three projects.


The first project (Eva Groen-Reijman at Wageningen University) aims to identify and justify norms for responsible nudges in the context of health nutrition. Qualitative research is conducted to gain insight into the opportunities and barriers of nudges for acceptability and desirability with users and end-users. The empirical data from projects 2 and 3 will inform a normative analysis of the ethical aspects of nudging, and subsequently we identify specific ethical dimensions of healthy diet nudges by private companies or organizations.


The second project (Laurens van Gestel at Utrecht University) aims to investigate how and under what specific conditions nudges may contribute to healthy diets.  By means of laboratory experiments, more fundamental insight will be gained into the psychological processes and mechanisms by which nudges promote healthy diets. This project will specifically focus on both the experience of being nudged (i.e., how nudging affects feelings of autonomous decision making) and how nudging actually promotes healthy decisions.


The third project (Merije van Rookhuizen at Wageningen University) aims to evaluate whether and for whom nudges can have short- and long-term impact on health behavior. By means of experiments in ecologically valid real-life settings, insight will be gained into who will be reached with and exposed to nudges and into the sustainability of nudging effects on behavior change and habit formation.
