Anhedonia (pleasure loss)
Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the at the University of Leuven, Belgium. As part of the research group Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences, I investigate anhedonia. Anhedonia is the loss of pleasure or interest in things that were previously found pleasurable, and a not yet fully understood core symptom of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).
I aim for robust and reproducible research, and try to be as transparent as I can be by publishing in open access journals, pre-registrating my analyses, and making my data and syntaxes publicly available.
