  • Profile

    My PhD project focuses on health communication in crises (such as the recent pandemic), the impact of threatening health messages on our mental well-being and the social life of health messages.Our aim is to build interventions that amplify health communication by counteracting negative effects on mental well-being. I’m also working on an interdisciplinary RPA project investigating language adaptation of conversational systems to the age of a speaker. Prior to starting my PhD journey, I worked as a junior lecturer teaching several courses at the Communication Science department and was awarded with the award for the Most Creative Lecturer on Zoom in 2021.
