I am an Associate Professor in Political Communication and Journalism in the Communication Science department of the University of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR). I am part of the editorial board of Journal of Communication and Media and Communication (an international open access journal), special issue editor of Digital Journalism (2018) and Journalism Studies (2020), board member of the Society of Advertising, co-chair of the political communication division of the Netherlands-Flanders Communication Association, and member of the Amsterdam Young Academy.
My research focuses on the consequences and implications of online communication for individuals and society. I have experience in interdisciplinary and multi-methodological approaches, in which I combine insights from persuasive, journalism, and political communication with survey data, big data, observational, experimental, and eye-tracking data. I recently published papers on online behavioral advertising, microtargeting, privacy behavior, news consumption among adolescents, online sourcing, and media diets. I am also involved in large interdisciplinary research projects (focus on personalized communication) together with IVIR and immersive journalism together with the Journalism School Utrecht. I also work on international projects focusing on the (democratic) consequences of changing media habits, and longitudinal media effects (with the University of Gothenburg).
In the communication science department, I teach in both the bachelor and master, and I take part in several committees. I (co)supervise several PhD students in political communication and I was between 2016 – 2019 the convener of the PhD club.
