I am an assistant professor Political Communication at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) at the University van Amsterdam. My research mainly focuses on the content and effects of online communication in a political context.
In 2007, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology at Utrecht University. In 2008, I finished my Master’s degree Policy Analyses and Organizations at Utrecht University. Between 2008 and 2010, I worked as a researcher at the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research (NIVEL). Between 2011 and 2014, I wrote a dissertation about online political communication and its effects on citizens’ political involvement at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) at the University of Amsterdam.
I am currently co-chair of the political communication division of the Netherlands-Flanders Communication Association.
