Joran Geeraerts holds a master's degree in Psychology: Theory & Research (2020, KU Leuven). During his full-time internship from 2019 to 2020 at the Research Group of Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences (KU Leuven), he investigated data quality in the context of Experience Sampling Methods (ESM), more specifically exploring statistical and methodological techniques to detect careless responding. In November 2020, he started working as a doctoral researcher at the End-of-Life Care Research Group at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). His work as a researcher mainly focuses on adapting ESM to fit the needs of advanced cancer patients and testing its feasibility, possibly enabling the detailed study of patients’ daily experiences (emotions, symptoms, context, etc.).
