Irene FierloosPhD Candidate
Research groupYouth health care
I have a background in Social Policy and Public Health. My interest lies at the interface between science, policy and practice. I am committed to reducing socioeconomic inequalities in health and finding practical solutions for social challenges, in close cooperation with the target groups.
During my PhD, I will examine how social support and informal care may strengthen self-efficacy and resilience across the life span. In addition, my research aims to identify subgroups at risk of reduced access to social support and informal care.
I am involved in the CIKEO project in which we evaluate the effectiveness of key components of preventive parenting programs carried out in the Netherlands.
