How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Yoram K. Kunkels works as a PhD-student at the Trans-ID Project. This project focusses on the detection of critical transitions in depression, based on complex dynamical system theory and individual time series experiments. Within this project, Yoram investigates fysiological measurements, such as heart rate variability and sleep- and activity patterns, and their relation with transitions in depression. Yoram recieved his Research Master Psychology from the UvA in 2016. Yoram is currently a Member of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) and a Member of the Society for Ambulatory Assessment (SAA).

To support the further development of Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM) research by creating an open repository of existing ESM items (https://osf.io/kg376/)
The experience sampling methodology (ESM) has been positioned as a promising opportunity for personalized medicine in psychiatry. A requisite for moving ESM towards clinical practice is that outcomes of person-centered analyses are not contingent on the researcher. In this study, we crowdsourced the analysis of one individual patient’s ESM data to 12 prominent research teams to investigate how much researchers vary in their analytical approach towards individual time series data and to what degree outcomes vary based on analytical choices. The research proposal, data and materials can be found on the OSF: https://osf.io/h3djy/
Complex dynamical systems show generic early warning signals (EWS) that indicate the approach of a critical transition in the system. I hypothesize that such EWS also anticipate critical transitions in mood. The general aim of this project is to search for personalized early warning signals of critical transitions in states of psychopathology.
