Individual differences in wellbeing
We use genetically informative approaches to get a better hold of the genetic and environmental influences and the fascinating, but complex interplay of genes and environment to understand the causes of individual differences in wellbeing. The large-scale longitudinal database of the Netherlands Twin Register (www.tweelingenregister.vu.nl) contains lots of valuable data for AI approaches, for example longitudinal survey data, multi-omics data, and possibilities for linking to other databases. We furthermore collect ecological momentary assessment data and passive sensing data to study daily life wellbeing.
