Hannah obtained her BSc in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour from McMaster University in Canada and her Research MSc in Psychology (with a specialization in Developmental Psychology) from the University of Amsterdam.

She is a PhD student on our NWO-Vidi project looking at teacher’s beliefs and feedback, children’s self-beliefs, and achievement inequality. She uses observational and experimental studies to explore how teacher-child interactions exacerbate achievement inequality. As an undergraduate student, Hannah studied auditory-motor coordination in children at risk for developmental coordination disorder. During her masters, Hannah researched the impact of mindset, burnout, and effort beliefs on academic success in Dutch secondary school students.
