I am the director of the ICS and a professor at the Department of Sociology of the University of Groningen. 

Research projects

My research is part of TRAILS (TRacking Adolescents’ Individual Lives Survey) and the KiVa Antibullying Program. I coordinate a research group on the Social Development of Young People (WALM).

I have given my inaugural lecture on October 15, 2013. I gave a keynote at the Opening of the Academic Year in 2022.

The Department of Sociology exists since 1938. You can watch short films about our research and the presentations at our 80th anniversary.
