I want to understand why people dislike people from other groups in society and what the consequences of troubled inter-group relations are. Specifically:
- Political attitudes and political behavior
- Attitudes toward LGBTQIA+ people, women, immigrants
- Social inequality and marginalization
In this I focus on a.o. development throughout the life course and structural equation modelling.
PhD fellow at the PROMENTA Research Center in the project "Pathways into Social Marginalization", funded by the Norwegian Research Council.
After obtaining my BSc in Political Science at the VU University in Amsterdam, I earned a research MSc in Migration, Ethnic Relations, and Multiculturalism at Utrecht University (2018) and a MSc in Political Theory at Radboud University (2020) in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In my first master I focused on political behavior and attitudes toward immigrants and in the second toward women and the LGBTQIA+ community.
I supervise master and bachelor students.
I am currently the representative for the fixed-term academic employees at the Psychology department board of UiO.
I co-organize the PSI Pride Event 2022.
