My research interests are multilingualism in education, daycare, and language policy, and sociolinguistics more generally.
I am currently conducting PhD research within the SAME project. My PhD research is about the peer interactions of multilingual children in daycare in the Netherlands. I combine quantitative and qualitative methods, e.g. social network analysis, observation, interviews, and surveys. My PhD research was also part of Project MIND about bilingual daycare (www.projectmind.nl)
My supervisors are:
In the past, I was involved in projects about equal opportunities in primary school (Anna Glazenborg, Folkert Kuiken, Sible Andringa), multilingual students at university (Heleen Vander Beken) and multilingual language policy in The Hague (Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade). See the publications below.
