Since September 2018, I am a PhD-candidate at the Social, Health & Organizational Psychology department of Utrecht University, and proud to be part of the labgroup of prof. dr. Belle Derks. I am intrigued by aspects of life that seem incompatible, but actually are complementary. For my master's thesis, prof. dr. Esther Kluwer and I examined the positive combination of autonomy and relatedness within romantic relationships. Within my PhD-project, we examine how men and women who are transitioning into parenthood divide paid work, childcare and household tasks and how traditional gender attitudes influence this process. How can we combine the time-consuming, perhaps even contradicting roles of being a parent and being a working professional in a more egalitarian way? And is that more satisfactory as well? We will look at influences on institutional (i.e. societal norms, policies), relational (i.e. negotiation dynamics) and intrapersonal (i.e. identity development) levels. This project has an interdisciplinary approach, where we aim to integrate psychological, sociological and philosophical perspectives. Therefore my promotors come from different disciplines: prof. dr. Belle Derks and my daily promotor dr. Ruth van Veelen (UU, Social Psychology), prof. dr. Pearl Dykstra (EUR, Sociology) and prof. dr. Pauline Kleingeld (RUG, Philosophy).
