Research interests: I am interested in personal and group factors that drive individuals’ responses to global crises, in particular climate change. One research line I am currently working on focuses on personal and (perceived) group values. What values do individuals strongly endorse, what values do individuals perceive others to endorse, and how do such values influence individuals’ attitudes and behaviours?
Another line of research focuses on the interaction between individuals and technology, particularly within the energy domain. How can we better understand and consider the preferences and motivations of people within energy systems, how can we adjust technological innovations to user preferences and motivations, and can we give people a more active role within energy systems and the decision making about energy systems?
In my work, I collaborate with various partners in the field, such as municipalities (e.g., Groningen, Wageningen), national governments (e.g., Ministry of Economic and Climate Affairs), energy companies (Enexis, Alliander), nature organizations (e.g., WWF, Alliance for Nature, Groninger Landschap, Dutch Association of Zoos) and schools.

I am deeply fascinated by what you could label "Hidden Persuasion": how subtle (and not so subtle) marketing cues influence consumers in their emotions, thoughts and behavior, frequently without them being aware of this influence. The results of this research can aid in empowering consumers and foster health and wellbeing. Please see the research page for an overview of published work in these areas
