Eiko is a psychologist, methodologist, and nearly photographer. He obtained his PhD in clinical psychology at the Free University of Berlin, followed by four years of postdoctoral training in methodology at KU Leuven and University of Amsterdam. He returned to clinical psychology in 2018, as Assistant Professor at Leiden University, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2021. He works at the intersection of clinical psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, methodology, and complexity science, and enjoys dabbling in philosophy of science. His interests are how to best understand, measure, model, and classify mental health problems—and in improving cumulative psychological science through open science practices. He loves burnt coffee and fast computers, and is humbled to get to work with many fantastic researchers from all over the world.

Research

My interests are how to best understand, measure, model, and classify mental health problems. To do so, I conceptualize mental health or illness as emergent properties that arise from complex, dynamical, biopsychosocial systems, rather than as clear-cut categories with simple causes. I work at the intersection of clinical psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, methodology, and complexity science, and enjoy learning about philosophy of science. Besides that, I am interested in improving cumulative psychological science through open science practices.
   
One of my core foci moving forward is developing a personalized, early warning system for depression, called WARN-D, as part of my ERC Starting Grant obtained in 2020 (WARN-D).
