I am a professor at the Inter-university Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS)* and the Department of Sociology of the University of Groningen.
My research is part of TRacking Adolescents' Individual Lives Survey (TRAILS)** and the KiVa Antibullying Program.***

For a more elaborate overview of all my grants/projects, please check my website.

* The Inter-university Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) is a leading research center and graduate school in the social sciences in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1986. ICS is located at 4 universities: the University of Groningen, Utrecht University, Radboud University Nijmegen, and the University of Amsterdam.

** The TRAILS study follows since 2001 a group of Dutch young people in the northern Netherlands in their development. Over 2,500 young people get questionnaires, interviews, and other tests every two years. This way, TRAILS examines both their physical and mental development.

*** KiVa is a Dutch Youth Institute (NJi) approved program that is effective in the Netherlands and Finland in preventing and resolving bullying in schools. The program is user-friendly and provides practical materials for teachers, students, and parents. KiVa emphasizes the role of the whole group in preventing and stopping bullying and has a clear roadmap.
