I am interested in understanding the meaning people attach to the environment and the way in which this meaning is conveyed in (policymaking) interactions. I think that social interactions are always embedded in a social environment, which is why I prefer qualitative methods because of their contextual nature. Nonetheless, I believe that the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods can deliver fruitful results. This forms the basis for my openness to collaboration with quantitative-oriented scholars within my discipline, as well as scholars from other disciplines. In addition, teaching represents an important part of my scholarly identity.
