Short CV

Leone combined the bachelor studies psychology and political sciences at Leiden University and completed the research master Developmental Psychology here in 2011. After a clinical internship, she started a PhD project at the University of Amsterdam. She investigated online training of cognitive biases and cognitive control to prevent anxiety and depression in adolescents, under supervision of Dr. Elske Salemink, Prof. Reinout Wiers, Prof. Peter de Jong (RUG) en Prof. Pier Prins. In December 2016, she successfully defended her PhD-thesis ‘Always look on the bright side of life? The quest for an online cognitive training to prevent adolescent anxiety and depression'.

She worked for a short period as a postdoctoral researcher at the department of developemental psychology and subsequently at the sociology department, where she worked with Prof. Herman van de Werfhorst on a study on the role of psychological processes in educational inequality.  

Early 2018, she made the transition to a policy function at the Vereniging Openbaar Onderwijs (association for public education). Here, she focused on the position of public education, civic and religious education, educational inequality and the Dutch system of inclusive and special education. She was also chief editor of their magazine ‘Onze School’ and completed a part-time study Journalism for Academics and Professionals.


Leone supervises bachelor projects, master theses and clinical internships and teaches workgroups Advanced Psychodiagnostics in Children and Adolescents.

At the UvA, she was also a thesis supervisor and teacher of workgroups in developmental psychology and research methods.


Leone is project manager of ‘In je SAS! - Early recognition and intervention of stress and anxiety in the classroom’, a project made possible by an educational innovation grant from the municipality of Leiden.

In collaboration with schools in the Leiden region we work on early recognition of stress and anxiety and accessible early interventions, in order to promote a safe learning environment and healthy social-emotional development and to prevent school dropout.

The project also strives for structural collaboration between the Leiden Center of Expertise on Stress and Anxiety in Youth and schools in the Leiden region. Here, we focus on sharing expertise, training and support for teachers, and appropriate early interventions for children who fall between the support of schools and youth mental health care.
