From 2004 to 2008 she worked as a junior researcher and teacher at the Behavioural Science Institute (Radboud University) in Nijmegen and wrote a dissertation, supervised by Prof. dr. Cilia Witteman and Dr. Rob Holland, on the influence of mood states on intuitive and deliberative decision making. In 2008, Marieke was a postdoctoral researcher, working together with Dr. Rob Holland at the Radboud University Nijmegen. From 2008 to 2011, she has been a Senior Researcher in the Psychology of Judgment and Decision Making at the Department of Medical Decision Making of the Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands.
Marieke obtained several grants (EASP & RU) for two research visits (2007 & 2008) to the University of California in San Diego (UCSD), to work together with Dr. Piotr Winkielman, for a research visit to Dr. Ellen Peters at Decision Research in Eugene (Oregon, USA) in 2010, for a research visit to Dr. Angela Fagerlin at the University of Michigan, to Dr. Ellen Peters at Ohio State University and to Dr. Jamin Halberstadt at the University of Otago in Dunedin (New Zealand) in 2011. Moreover, she obtained several larger scale research grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMW).
