Sanne Nauts joins the research team as postdoctoral fellow

We are very pleased to announce that Sanne Nauts has joined the “Promoting Effective Intentions” research team as a postdoctoral fellow at the Self-Regulation Lab.

After obtaining her master’s degree in Social Psychology from Radboud University Nijmegen in 2009, Nauts started working on a PhD-project on “backlash for gender atypicality” under supervision of prof. Daniel Wigboldus (Radboud University Nijmegen) and prof. Laurie Rudman (Rutgers University). In this project, she studied why people often respond negatively to atypical men and women, such as modest men and competent female leaders. Her research interests include (gender) stereotypes, person perception, and health behavior.

From June 1st 2014 onwards, Nauts will study if implementation intentions and nudges can be used as effective interventions against bedtime procrastination. Moreover, she is interested in finding out why people engage in bedtime procrastination, and how bedtime procrastination differs from other forms of procrastination (e.g., academic procrastination).

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Sanne to the team!
