"An interdisciplinary approach that combines psychology, modeling and cognitive neuroscience is vital to understanding and predicting choice behavior."

Anna van Duijvenvoorde is an assistant professor at the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

She obtained her Master's degree from the University of Amsterdam in 2007. In 2013, she received her PhD in developmental psychology from the University of Amsterdam with honors for her dissertation entitled: 'On the art of choosing: Developmental changes and individual differences in decision making under risk'. Anna's PhD project focused on the (neural) mechanisms of risky decision-making, in which she used model-based analyses to study individual differences and age-related changes in risky choice.

Her current research in the Brain and Development Laboratory of Professor Eveline Crone focuses on longitudinal analyses of brain activation related to social-emotional and cognitive-control changes across adolescence.
