I am a PhD researcher in social sciences at the EUI, where I study the politicisation of migration, European integration and Islam on far-right Facebook pages in Western Europe. My research interests are at the intersection of technology and society, specifically in the field of computer mediated political communication, populist mobilization online, political Internet memes and harmful online speech.  I previously studied Sociology, Political Science and Digital Humanities at VU University Amsterdam, Leiden University and KU Leuven. I worked as a research assistant at VU University Amsterdam and Harvard University.
