Biografie

I am an interdisciplinary social scientist with a background in Sociology and Human Geography focussing on health and consumption. Before joining Wageningen University (CHL), I worked at the Meertens Institute (KNAW) and at Delft University of Technology. My research explores how  inequailities are shaped and reshaped within diverse sociomaterial configurations. I currently work on the following projects: 

Understanding dignity of food aid receivers in Europe (WASS), exploring the way in which forms of food aid shape dignity of recipients, through ethnographic fieldwork.       

Less stress and poverty, more experienced health and participation (ZonMw), exploring the way in which stigma and shame shape experiences of people in poverty, through multimethod research including biographic interviews, focus groups and observation.

Societal acceptance of plant based diets and healthy food environments (NWO), exploring societal backlash against meat curtailment policies, through discourse analysis, ethnographic fieldwork and methods developed in critical heritage studies (emotion networking).

Transition Towards a Sustainable Food System (NWA, NWO), exploring potential transition pathways with stakeholders, through, among others, futuring methods. 

Towards a data-driven dashboard to support a socially-just transition to circular agriculture (CUCO), exploring the potential role of farm data with stakeholders in a socially just sustainability transition in agriculture.   

Previous: 

Meer dan Handig, Onderzoek naar de impact van hulpmiddelen op het leven van gebruikers (ZonMW)

The social dynamics of smart grids: On households, information flows & sustainable energy transitions (WUR);

Migration and material culture (NWO)
