Elisa Van Wiele
Elisa Van Wiele started in September 2023 as a PhD researcher in Jessie Dezutter’s Meaning Research Late Life Lab. Her research focusses on Tiredness of Life in nursing home residents. She aims to understand how nursing home residents and their (formal and informal) carers experience this complex phenomenon. Her research also aims to examine how/if Tiredness of Life in nursing home residents differs from related themes, such as depression and existential suffering.
Elisa obtained degrees in Philosophy and Clinical Psychology at the KU Leuven. During her master’s degree, she participated in the ERASMUS-program and studied at the University of Padova. In her clinical internship, she gained experience in psychodiagnosis and sleep-therapy at Huis Midori.
