I am an assistant professor of sociology at Leiden University in the Netherlands, where I teach urban studies, digital society, and research methods. I am affiliated with Leiden University’s Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology as well as the Center for BOLD Cities jointly based in the universities of Leiden, Delft, and Rotterdam.

My research investigates urban, religious and digital spaces and asks how they are made, how they intersect, and how they change.

Prior to joining Leiden University, I was a postdoctoral researcher in sociology at the University of Amsterdam. I received my PhD in sociology (with a certificate in women’s studies) from the City University of New York in 2015.
