Wilhelm Thieme developed the CSNA app in cooperation with me for social network analysis purposes.

The app is freely accessible for research purposes in the App Store, as long as you cite it:

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.
