I am an Assistant Professor in Persuasive Communication at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (University of Amsterdam). My research interests lie primarily in human-machine communication. In particular, I focus on emerging media technologies such as conversational agents. I am interested in how the characteristics of non-human communication partners influence human interactions with them, as well as the persuasive consequences of these interactions (over time).
