Biography

Esther studied Social Sciences at University College Utrecht, The Netherlands, where she received a Bachelor’s degree (cum laude) in 2002.  She completed her MSc in Social Psychology in 2003, and received her PhD in 2008 at Utrecht University.  She received the Best Dissertation Award of the Dutch Association of Social Psychological Researchers, the Early Career Award (Jaspars Award) of the European Association for Social Psychology, and a VENI-grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. 

Esther worked as an Assistant and then as an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Utrecht University, before joining the University of Glasgow in September 2015. Her research has been published in, for example, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Appetite, and the International Journal of Obesity. She serves on the editorial boards of Social Cognition, Appetite, and Social Psychology. She is Associate Editor at Global Environmental Psychology, and a member of the Young Academy of Scotland.

Esther is a member of the Complexity Programme in the Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in the School of Health and Wellbeing. She is also associated with the School of Psychology and Neuroscience, where she teaches the Psychology of Climate Change.

Research interests

Esther's research addresses the cognitive processes underlying the regulation of behaviour and behaviour change, especially in the domains of health and climate change. Together with her team in Healthycognitionlab.org, she examines the social and psychological processes in the transition to a healthier, more sustainable and more equitable society, with a special focus on food and eating behaviour.
