Short CV

Nina Komrij is a PhD candidate in the Developmental and Educational Psychology unit of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

Nina obtained her master’s degree in Health Sciences at the VU University Amsterdam in 2020, where she specialized in health promotion and the prevention of health problems. During her studies, she was engaged in the identification of factors related to unhealthy sleep behavior among primary schoolchildren. After finishing her master, she worked for several months as a junior researcher at the GGD Amsterdam at this same project. In December 2020, Nina started with her PhD project ‘Cool Little Kids: Effectiveness of an early intervention program for anxiety-prone toddlers in the Netherlands’.

Research

In her PhD project, Nina is investigating the (cost)effectiveness of the ‘Cool Little Kids’ program. Previous research showed that high levels of shyness and social withdrawal in toddlerhood increase the risk of developing anxiety problems in later life. ‘Cool Little Kids’ is an early intervention program focused on the prevention of anxiety problems among these children at risk. In order to investigate the effectiveness of the program, Nina will set up a randomized controlled trial in collaboration with several societal parties, such as the GGD Amsterdam and mental health organizations.
