  • Cristina Spolaia, MSc 2017

Cristina was supervised by Prof. Derks her during her thesis: “Moral Guilt: how compensatory behaviours and guilt are influenced by work-family conflict and the motherhood ideal”. Cristina investigated how the potential role of the newly gained identity as a mother, may lead women experiencing more guilt and then overcompensating behaviour, specifically breastfeeding. Now, Cristina has taken a slightly different direction in her academic studies and is doing her PhD in the interaction between experimental psychology and art. More specifically, she is investigating the visual perception of materials in paintings at TU Delft; supervised by Dr. Maarten Wijntjes & Prof. Huib de Ridder. She will also seek to apply her knowledge in social psychology to this unique project.
