Kristell Penfornis was born and raised in France and moved to the Netherlands in 2010 for her studies. She obtained a BA in Business Administration in 2014 after which she worked in a multinational firm in Amsterdam. Not feeling a complete fit for the corporate world and having always had a strong interest in human behavior and thinking, she finally made the shift to the field of psychology.
She obtained her Health & Medical Psychology MSc degree in 2019 (cum laude) at Leiden University and started her PhD at the Health, Medical and Neuropsychology unit shortly after. In parallel to her PhD, she works as a medical psychologist at the cardiology clinic of the Leiden University Medical Center.
