Lotte van Rijn

PhD Candidate
Erasmus University Rotterdam


Lotte van Rijn’s research focuses on the development of self-regulation on both the behavioral and neural levels. She uses behavioral tasks along with functional neuroimaging to examine developmental trajectories of delay discounting as a measure of self-regulation. She focuses on individual differences in self-regulation for the self and for others, and how this influences outcomes related to educational and social development. She is involved in data collection for WP1 as part of the Rotterdam Cohort in cooperation with the Amsterdam cohort.  Along with a team of PhD’s and students, she will collect the first wave of data collection for the GUTS consortium.

Her (co)promoters are Eveline Crone, Anna van Duijvenvoorde, and Lydia Krabbendam.
