Assistant Professor (with tenure), Utrecht University
I am an Assistant Professor (with tenure) at the Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Previously, I held a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen and a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz, Germany. I obtained my PhD at the Humboldt University of Berlin.
My research interest lies in the processes of migrants' adaptation to the host society. Currently, I focus on how migrants perceive their host society and welfare state, what factors lead to their attitudes adapting to those of the majority society, and what knowledge migrants have about their social rights. Moreover, I am very much interested in the role of social networks in these adaptation processes.
In addition, I am an enthusiastic teacher. Transmitting knowledge to my students in an accessible way is one of my primary goals.
