I am a full professor at the Department of Sociology at the University of Groningen and a board member of the ICS

Research projects

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

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

The Department of Sociology was founded in 1938. You can watch short movies about our research and the presentations at our 80th anniversary.
