Karin Fikkers is postdoctoraal onderzoeker aan de Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) en bij het Center for research on Children, Adolescents, and the Media (CcaM). Ze maakt deel uit van het Consortium of Individual Development, een consortium van zeven Nederlandse universiteiten dat kijkt naar waarom sommige kinderen het wél en anderen het niet goed doen in de samenleving (www.individualdevelopment.nl). In dit project werkt Karin aan een beter en genuanceerder begrip van de rol van (gewelddadig) entertainment in het leven van kinderen en jongeren.

Karin behaalde haar Bachelordiploma bij de afdeling Bedrijfscommunicatie aan de Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen (2007), waarna ze cum laude afstudeerde binnen de Research Master Language and Communication (Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, Universiteit van Tilburg, 2010). Tussen 2011 en 2015 deed Karin promotieonderzoek naar de effecten van mediageweld op agressief gedrag onder adolescenten, waarbij ze met name keek naar welke adolescenten hier (het meest) gevoelig voor zijn. In februari 2016 behaalde ze cum laude de doctorstitel na de verdediging van haar proefschrift getiteld “A different(ial) perspective: How social context influences the media violence-aggression relationship among early adolescents”.
