About Me

EXPERTISE

In 2014 I graduated cum laude for my master’s degree in Psychology (specialization Conflict, Risk & Safety), and in 2015 I received a master’s degree in Public Administration (specialization Public Safety). The subject of my master thesis for psychology was ‘Determining crime seriousness in the context of victim-offender mediation’. This research was conducted in collaboration with the organization Victim in Focus (Slachtoffer in Beeld). For Public Administration I graduated at the Research and Advisory Group of the Dutch Police-unit ‘East-Netherlands’ on ‘Multidisciplinary cooperation within teams’.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

During my PhD-project I will examine the role of citizens in community policing. The project aim is to identify the mechanisms underlying citizen participation in policing with a focus on issues such as crime and social disorder. In a later phase, I will develop and test interventions as how to improve citizen participation.
The PhD-project is supervised by Prof. dr. José Kerstholt, dr. Peter de Vries and Prof. dr. Ellen Giebels. Funding: TNO.
