Dr Jorien Treur obtained her PhD in 2016 at Vrije Universiteit University in Amsterdam, where she analyzed data of twin-families to disentangle genetic from environmental influences on mental health. After her PhD she worked as a post-doc at the University of Bristol, specializing in genetic causal inference methods. She joined Amsterdam UMC as an Assistant Professor in 2018, where she now has her own research team (funded by an European Research Council starting grant and the Dutch Heart Foundation).
