  • Profile

    I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) and the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS). In 2013, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology (cum laude) at Tilburg University, and in 2015, I obtained a Master of Science degree in Social Psychology (cum laude) at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In autumn 2018, I conducted research at Stanford University as a visiting PhD scholar.

    My PhD research is dedicated to shedding light on the causes and consequences of homogeneity in personal networks. I investigate how homogeneity in a wide range of characteristics (e.g. ethnicity, income, age) emerges within personal networks. I also explore the extent to which this network homogeneity contributes to inequality with regard to life chances and health/ wellbeing. Much of my work focuses on neighborhoods, because neighborhoods are an important social context where individuals socialize and form relationships. Neighborhoods are also a social context with great potential for developing and testing interventions that aim to foster intergroup contact. Because of my background in social psychology, my work is inspired by a blend of social psychological and sociological theories.

    Next to my research, I am a passionate teacher in our Sociology Bachelor's program, which is well-reflected in exellent teaching evaluations of the courses Education, Stratifiation and Life Courses and Mixed MethodsI have been actively contributing to the PhD community at the AISSR by founding and leading the PhD Club Quantitative Inequality and Network Research (2015-present), organizing the PhD weekend 2016, and serving as PhD representative of the program group Institutions, Inequalities and Life Courses at the AISSR in 2018/2019.

    Promoters: Prof. Dr. Beate Volker and Dr. Bram Lancee.
