….. Dr Holmes is one of the foremost researchers in trauma, cognitive and emotional processing, and memory. She is a prolific researcher, whose work has been cited over 600 times and she has a h index of 14.

He currently has 42 publications on the Web of Science that, collectively, have been cited 271 times (h index = 9).

To successfully venture in these new fields, Dr. Luyckx worked in close collaboration with the colleagues from various sub-disciplines in psychology and, increasingly, with medical professionals as well. He collaborates with many colleagues in Europe and the United States. His work received substantial international recognition.……
