I will be working on the GO Baby study, as well as the BIBO study, and will be writing my thesis using data acquired in the latter. Pregnancy and the first couple of years after birth are very fascinating to me. Not only because there are so many changes happening in the bodies and behaviours of mother and child, but also because these developments can be influenced by internal and external circumstances, like the mother’s mental wellbeing or the situation at home.
I am very excited that I can gain practical experience and take a first step towards entering the world of research myself. In the BIBO study I will mostly be helping with the scheduling and preparing of the test round of each participant and later I will be performing quality checks and processing the sleep data. And in the GO Baby study I will be directly involved with data collection in the lab.
