I am an assistant professor for Political Communication & Journalism at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR), University of Amsterdam. My research focuses on effects of political communication on political trust, dynamics in political communication, emotions in political communication and methods of communication research.
Before working at ASCoR, I was a PostDoc and PhD candidate at the Institute for Communication Psychology and Media Education at the University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany. My dissertation focused on effects of soft news characteristics (personalization, privatization, negativity) on trust in politcians.
