Curriculum vitae

Laura did a research master in psychology at the KU Leuven, the University of Leuven, Belgium. In September 2018, she also completed her PhD there (in the Research Group of Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences) on dynamic interpersonal emotional processes in romantic relationships. Currently, she is a postdoctoral researcher in an SNF-funded project on the feasibility of a digital protocol to monitor and predict suicidal ideation.
Her research interests focus on the investigation of dynamic intra- and interpersonal psychological processes and how they relate to people’s well-being. To this end, she uses multi-method approaches (e.g., lab interactions and ecological momentary assessments) and advanced statistical analyses suitable for longitudinal data analysis.
