Dr. Miranda Sentse is Assistant Professor at the Department of Pedagogical Sciences of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
In 2010 she defended her PhD dissertation in Behavioral Sciences (Cum Laude; highest distinction in the Netherlands). Afterwards dr. Sentse has conducted research as a postdoc at the University Medical Center Groningen (Psychiatry), University of Groningen (Sociology), and University of Turku, Finland (Psychology). As such, her research has a strong interdisciplinary character and focuses on interactional processes between child, family, and peer characteristics in predicting externalizing and internalizing problems in early adolescence with an emphasis on bullying. Her research tasks among others involved collecting data for the TRAILS study as well as involvement in the implementation of KIVA in the Netherlands, a promising research-based anti-bullying program for schools developed in Finland. In between her PhD and postdoc projects dr. Sentse has worked as a psychologist at Accare, University Center for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
