At the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences of Leiden University I am currently involved in several research programs, among others the Leiden Consortium for Individual Development (L-CID), 3G Family Lab, and Father Trials. In May 2018 I will retire to become an emeritus.

At Erasmus University Rotterdam I am a parttime professor of human development in the Department of Psychology, Education, and Child Studies (DPECS) until 2023, and one of the co-leaders of Generation R.

From 2017 to 2020 I am the Wellcome Trust Visiting Professor in the Primary Care Unit of the School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, and Visiting Scholar at Sidney Sussex College. I am working in the Applied Social Sciences Group headed by Robbie Duschinsky.
