What I do
I am an early career academic anthropologist and historian. I am interested in a broad range of topics such as: (online) hate, discrimination and how to combat different forms of discrimination. I have a diverse educational background and I am internationally oriented; I conducted research on rural to urban migration in Mbarara, Uganda and obtained education from the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. Currently, I am working at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (NL) as a PhD-researcher. I work within the project Sport and Nation and my doctoral research is on Football Fandom and Holocaust Education. I am researching football-related antisemitic discourse(s) in on- and offline spaces. My research also involves educational programmes initiated to prevent discrimination and antisemitism in football stadiums in the Netherlands. You can find more about my work here. I also teach Global History, a course during which first year history students are introduced to the history of the world from 1500 to present. The political, economic and cultural interaction between the non-Western history and Western history is central to this course.
I am writing an article on online hate speech and football-related antisemitism.
I am trying to learn Python.
I have visited 29 countries on 4 different continents and lived in 5 different countries.
I am currently based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
