Marleen received her PhD from the University of Amsterdam's Social Psychology department in 2012. Subsequently, she worked at University College London for a year before returning to the Netherlands. Starting a postdoc project with the Self-Regulation Lab in 2013, she specialized in research on mechanisms of successful self-control, self-control strategies, and underlying processes of self-control conflict resolution and appraisal.

In 2015, Marleen was appointed assistant professor with the Self-Regulation Lab, at the Social, Health, and Organisational Psychology Department. In that position, she continued her research on self-control, as well as expanded her teaching within the department. Currently, Marleen coordinates a course on intervention development for the Social, Health, and Organizational master's program, as well as a theoretical course on behavioral regulation in terms of affect and motivation in the Social and Health Psychology research master's program. Furthermore, she gives guest lectures on several social and health psychology topics, and supervises bachelor and master thesis, internships, and PhD students.

Supreme Nudge
01.09.2017 to 01.09.2022
General project description 

The Supreme Nudge project is part of a large consortium coordinated by Free University Amsterdam and involves multiple scientific and societal partners (including COOP supermarkets) who research the long term effectiveness of nudges in real life in terms of health behaviors and health outcomes. Supreme Nudge stands for Sustainable Prevention of Cardiometabolic Risk Through Nudging Health Behaviors. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development and runs from 2017 to 2022. The SelfRegulationLab is responsible for designing and testing nudges that speak to consumer decision making styles (either reasoned, habitual and impulsive) and examine how they affect awareness and attention in a virtual super market setting. People working on the Supreme Nudge project are Femke de Boer (PhD candidate), Marleen Gillebaart and Denise de Ridder.
