    Education

    I have coordinated, developed, and taught courses in the bachelor (1st, 2nd, and 3rd year), as well as in the master and research master on academic skills (literature search, writing, presenting, designing studies, analysing data) and on diverse topics of Social and Organizational Psychology (e.g., introduction to social psychology, group dynamics, social influence, cognition, emotions, intergroup relations). Currently, I provide lectures for the courses Group Dynamics and Interventions, Psychology and Crime, and Psychology of Safety. Also, I supervise 2nd year project groups, internships, bachelor and master theses.

     

    Moreover, I am educational director of the bachelor and (pre)master programmes of Psychology.
