About me

I graduated from the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (2009) and from the University of Groningen (2011). The past four years, I have been devoted to learning about research on dynamic social networks. I have published several scientific articles related to network-behavior dynamics in adolescence. Currently, I am involved in different research projects that involve social networks and the social development of children and adolescents. Most of my work has been presented at various conferences in Europe and North America.

My major research interests include:
  • Network models
  • Childhood and adolesence
  • Social relations
  • Antisocial risk behavior
  • Bullying and victimization
  • Status and popularity
  • Education outcomes
