Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.
My research projects include research on Christianity and Pentecostalism, secularity, ethics, NGOs and faith based organisations, health and prevention, youth care, education and foster care, international development, gender based violence, female leadership, women's agency and empowerment, sexuality education and sexual health programming, polarization and sexual nationalism.
I apply qualitative research methods, and have a particular interest in ethnographic and participatory research and creative (art-based) methodologies.
I have conducted research in and on The Netherlands and broader Western Europe, and in Sub Sahara Africa: Uganda, Kenya, Malawi, Ghana, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa
My work is always situated on the intersections of science and society and I have ample experience with knowledge valorisation, societal impact and applied research. In this I have a particular interest in how sound academic knowledge can empower and support marginalized people and communities.
Students who want to write their thesis on one of the themes mentioned above in relation to religion/ secularity and are interested in applying qualitative research methods may contact me.
