D.M.G. (Dimmy) van Dongen, MSc


I’m a PhD candidate within the section Safety and Security Science in the department of Values, Technology and Innovation, which is part of the TBM faculty. I will work for the ‘Center for Safety in Healthcare’ together with Prof.dr. Jop Groeneweg, Dr. Frank Guldenmund and Dr. Peter Roelofsma.

Prior to joining the TU Delft in January 2021, I completed the MSc Applied Cognitive Psychology at Leiden University. During my thesis research at the Leiden University Medical Center I especially got interested in psychological safety and the ‘just culture’.


My research focus is aimed at developing and testing new measurement methods and interventions for human and organisational factors such as psychological safety and ‘just culture’, which influence the safety in health care.
