  • Profile

    I am an Assistant Professor of Education, Citizenship and Democracy in a Digital World at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR). My research interests include false information, fact-checking, media literacy as well as public trust in institutions like journalism and science. I am also affiliated with the Dutch-Flemish hub of the European Digital Media Observatory (BENEDMO), which brings together academic researchers, journalists and fact-checkers to tackle the problem of disinformation. Visit the BENEDMO website here.

    Prior to this I was a postdoctoral researcher (2022) working with Michael Hameleers and Claes de Vreese on the problem of misinformation and the potential of different fact-checking strategies as part of the BENEDMO project.

    From 2020 to 2022, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher and project coordination manager in the Department of Media and Communication at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) where I studied public trust in science, the problem of scientific misinformation and the extent to which improved science communication practices are able to contribute to rebuilding trust in science. This postdoc project was embedded in the Horizon 2020 project 'Trustworthy, Reliable, and Engaging Scientific Communication Approaches' (TRESCA) where I also served as the project coordination manager. Find out more about the TRESCA project here. One of the key outcomes of this work is a science communication video in collaboration with the YouTube channel Kurzgesagt- In a nutshell (watch the science communication video here) and a Massive Open Online Course called "Communicating trustworthy informaton in the digital world", which can be found on Coursera.

    In 2018, I was a visiting PhD scholar at Stanford University, and I hold a PhD in Sociology (2020) from the University of Amsterdam, a Master of Science in Social Psychology from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (cum laude, 2015) and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Tilburg University (cum laude, 2013).
