Profile

I am trained in both sociological and social-psychological research traditions. I completed a PhD in sociology, and the topic of my dissertation was interethnic contacts in Western countries. Using nationally representative longitudinal surveys of immigrants in the Netherlands, Germany and Canada I examined the development of immigrants’ contacts with natives during their residence in the host country and identified socio-demographic determinants of such interethnic contacts.

My graduate coursework and thesis as well as postdoctoral research have been of social-psychological character. During a post-doctoral project I examined national identification in the Netherlands among ethnic minorities and native Dutch, as well as ethnic and religious identification of ethnic minorities, and how these affect intergroup relations. I am also interested in multilingualism and in particular whether people who speak more languages tend to be more open towards ethnic outgroups.

In 2012/2013 I visited the School of Psychology at University of Queensland, Australia, as a recipient of the Endeavour Research Fellowship Award. Together with Prof. Jolanda Jetten I worked on a project about the ideology of autochthony (entitlements for first-comers) and how such beliefs affect acceptance of immigrants. Our second project involves post-migration relations between immigrant groups coming from the same conflict area. The focus is on ethnic groups from former Yugoslavia living in Australia.

In 2016 I became member of the Utrecht Young Academy (UYA) (https://www.uu.nl/en/research/utrecht-young-academy)
