Jolien van Breen
Postdoc on Social Resilience and Security
Jolien van Breen is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs, working on the interdisciplinary programme Social Resilience and Security.
I studied at the Universities of Edinburgh and Amsterdam before obtaining my PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Groningen. Between 2017 and 2020, I was a postdoc at the University of Exeter (UK). Since September 2020 I have been working at Leiden University, within the Interdisciplinary Programme Social Resilience and Security.
My background is in experimental social psychology - I am broadly interested in resilience and empowerment, focusing specifically on how communities and individuals can cope constructively with crime and violence. Other interests include gender identity, and psychophysiology – that is, the interplay between psychological and physiological processes.
