Lisanne completed a master’s degree in neuroscience and has gained extensive research experience in various labs, focused on the role of the brain in psychopathology in adolescents. As part of her doctoral work, she gained expertise in multimodal family research, where she particularly focused on identifying (dysfunctional) neural mechanisms underlying social evaluations and self-views from a parent-adolescent perspective using ecologically valid functional MRI tasks, which may relate to (daily) parent-adolescent interactions as well as adolescent depression.
Currently, Lisanne works as a postdoctoral researcher within Prof. dr. Neeltje van Haren’s lab at the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry/Psychology Unit of Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s hospital. She is involved in both the FAMILY consortium and PANDA-study, to investigate the risk for and resilience against intergenerational transmission of psychopathology in high-risk offspring from a (perinatal) neurodevelopmental perspective. Lisanne co-coordinates an open science course for PhD students and a minor child and adolescent psychiatry for medical students.
