About

I'm a researcher at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), Leiden University and a member of the Science and Evaluation Studies group led by Sarah de Rijcke. I have a background in the sociology of culture but migrated to science and technology studies and sociology of science after my PhD (University of Amsterdam, 2015).

I collaborate with colleagues at CWTS in different international projects such as R-Quest, led by Liv Langfeldt and Siri Borlaug, and Gender, Citizenship and Academic Power, with Agnete Vabø and Cathrine Egeland - both funded by the Research Council of Norway. I am part of the Kommunikationsprozesse in Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, working with Jenny Oltersdorf, Matthias Held and Jochen Gläser. I also contribute to the development of a research infrastructure in a project called RISIS, led by Philippe Laredo and funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme.
