Her research expertise is in historical social network analysis. From 2017 – 2020 she was a DH Fellow on the ERC Agents of Change Research project WeChangEd, investigating the historical networks of women editors, periodicals and organizations in Europe, as well as the research data manager for the linked open data of the bibliographic information of these editors. From 2014 – 2017 she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for Higher Education Governance Ghent, researching the identification of social networks through web data. She holds a doctorate in Organization Sciences from the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Given that the study of networks, both the theory and methods, crosses disciplines her research is inherently interdisciplinary. Her most recent research explores a computational method for extracting social networks from historical newspapers.
