  • About

    Eline works as a lecturer at University of Amsterdam at the department of Mediastudies, teaching students at both MA and BA level about journalism and production studies and research methods, both quantitative and qualitative. Besides her work in Amsterdam, she works as lecturer and thesis supervisor at Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

    Eline specializes in mixed-methods, doing both qualitative and quantitative research of media and media users. She is prone to say she is not a scholar of media, but of people.

    After studying Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology and specializing in the subjects of conflict, identity and nation-building for which she graduated in 2012, she received her M.A. in Media and Journalism at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. During her master she started her study of the audience in relation to mediated distant suffering. From February 2014 until March 2018, she worked as a PhD student at Ghent University under supervision of prof. Stijn Joye. She worked on a mixed-method study that further focuses on how audiences perceive images of distant suffering and how they process these images. After successfully finishing this project and defending her PhD in March 2018, she has worked as a researcher in the Netherlands at a commercial research and consultancy agency called Labyrinth, who are specialized in reaching out to diverse groups of people throughout society.
