About me

Biography

Since 2018 I work as a researcher and data-analyst at the Dutch Court of Audit in the Hague, combining my interest in policy research with data-analytics.

My researcher career started in 2001 I started with studying social and organisational psychology at the University of Groningen. My interest in group processes, combined with my personal interest to experience new cultures, motivated me to leave Groningen in the final year of my study to visit Paul Paulus at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), the United States of America. After returning to Groningen I started on a Ph.D.-project at the Institute for Integration and Social Efficacy at the University of Groningen with Sabine Otten, Karen van Oudenhoven-van der Zee, and Ellen Giebels as my advisors. This project resulted in my doctoral dissertation: “Neighbor-to-Neighbor Conflicts in Multicultural Neighborhoods” which I defended on January 6th, 2011.

In 2011 I worked at the Yale Intergroup Relations Lab as a postdoctoral associate at Yale University, with Jack Dovidio as my sponsor.

From 2012 to 2018 I worked as an Assistant Professor at the department Psychology of Conflict, Risk, and Safety (PCRS) of the University of Twente, in Enschede the Netherlands.
