About me

Who am I? I'm passionate PhD candidate at Utrecht University and a freelance photographer based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. My research focuses on peer relations, peer influence, and social learning. The main theme of my research is the study of how attitudes and behaviors of children and adolescents are influenced by others, primarily by peers and teachers.

As a PhD candidate, I’m involved in a cross-national study titled Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC), gaining insight into young people's well-being, health behaviours and their social context. This research collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe is conducted every four years in 43 countries and regions across Europe and North America. In The Netherlands, the study is a collaboration between Utrecht University, Trimbos Institute and The Netherlands Institute for Social Research (SCP). In my doctoral thesis, I address research questions concerning peer influence on adolescent health-related behaviors.

If you're interested, you can download my full résumé here. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions related to my my research and/or résumé.

As a photographer, my primary interest lies in portrait, people, editorial, and event photography. To see my work, please visit www.robgommansphotography.nl.
