I am a Ph.D Candidate at the department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy). My work at the EUI focusses on how far-right groups on social media express hateful speech towards outgroups. My further research interests include internet memes, research methods and computational social science.
I hold graduate degrees in Social Research (EUI), Sociology (VU University Amsterdam), Political Science (Leiden University) and Digital Humanities (KU Leuven). I previously worked as a teaching- and research assistant at the Department of Sociology at VU University Amsterdam and as a research assistant at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society.
