Short CV

Anna van Duijvenvoorde is an associate professor in the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

She obtained her PhD cum laude at the University of Amsterdam in 2013, after visiting Columbia University and the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology in New York. Her PhD work focused on learning from positive and negative feedback signals and risk taking across adolescence. She did her post-doctoral fellowship at Leiden University, studying developmental changes in brain functional connectivity and decision-making under uncertainty. She was promoted to assistant professor in 2014, and to associate professor in 2019.

Research

Anna’s research examines how brain development relates to changes in decision making, and learning in a social context during adolescence. She uses approaches from experimental behavioral psychology, computational modeling, and functional neuroimaging. Her work has clear implications for guiding adolescent’s risk taking, and for understanding how learning opportunities emerge in social environments such as school classes. Anna values translating scientific findings of brain development to the general public, for instance by giving lectures to teachers, and at high-schools to reach young people directly. She collaborates with researchers and societal partners as a member of the of the NeuroLabNL Route of the Dutch National Science Agenda in which she focuses on researching optimal conditions for learning. She also participates in the interdisciplinary program ‘Social resilience and Safety’ of Leiden University. Finally, Anna is committed to transfer skills, knowledge and a passion for scientific research to young scientists. Therefore, she actively participates in the Research Master Psychology, among others in her role as adjunct-director of studies. Finally, she is a member of the Young Academy Leiden. This platform stimulates and promotes the interests of young researchers regarding research and education policy, interdisciplinarity, and outreach. In 2020 she received the Heineken Young Scientist Award in the Social Sciences.
