In 2022 and 2023, I taught at the ‘BIGSSS Summer School in Computational Social Science’

In Karlsruhe, I co-taught the course ‘Sozialforschung: Wann und warum entsteht Meinungspolarisierung?’.

At the University of Groningen I have been involved in various courses, such as ‘Gemeente en haar burgers’ in the sociology bachelor (2017-2019), and ‘Theorizing Change’ in the social science research master program (2020). Between 2019 and 2021 I have lectured and coordinated the course ‘Opinion Dynamics on the INternet’ (ODIN) in the minor program ‘Data Wise: Data Science in Society’ and supervised a handful of projects in the collaborative data project of that same program.

Research visits & internships

In 2020, I visited prof. Duncan J. Watts & the Computational Social Science group at the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at UPenn (Philadelphia PA).

As an undergrad I have done two internships, at the Netherlands Institute for Social Research (Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau - SCP, The Hague) and at the knowledge centre of the mental healthcare provider ‘Trajectum’ (Zwolle, the Netherlands)
