Lisette de Jonge-Hoekstra (Psychology: Developmental Psychology)

Name: Lisette de Jonge-Hoekstra

Department: Developmental Psychology

Position (postdoc/assistant professor/associate professor): Assistant professor

Current research: I research how people, and children in specific, coordinate their multimodal communicative behaviors (e.g. speech, gestures, head movements) together with other people (/children) and materials in their environment when they learn something new.

When did you start as a member of YESS BSS? Sept. 2021

What you want to achieve with YESS BSS and which working groups you participate in? [2-3 sentences] To contribute to science and education, Early Career Researchers (ECRs) have to take on many roles and activities, which is both a blessing and a burden. To enable ECRs from diverse backgrounds and situations to do this, I believe it is important to give them a voice and to organize initiatives which meet their needs. Therefore I participate in the working groups Visibility & Valorization (chair), Open Science, Diversity & Inclusion and Stress in academia.
