Biography

In 2015 I graduated as a master in Communication Sciences, at Ghent University. In November 2016 I obtained a BOF scholarship at Ghent University to examine the effectiveness of communication strategies to stimulate the adoption of novel diagnostic tools. I am using both qualitative methods, such as focus groups, and quantitative methods, such as experimental design. Currently I am investigating the influence of bandwagon heuristics to incite pro-environmental behavior.

PhD Project

In November 2016 I obtained a BOF scholarship at Ghent University. This PhD is a consortium with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and focuses on perception biases and risk communication. More specifically, this is a multi-disciplinary research into the effectiveness of communication strategies to stimulate the adoption of novel diagnostic tools. I am developing an overall theoretical framework that explores perception biases that influences risk perception and behavior change. These findings will be implemented when developing strategies to incite the adoption of novel diagnostic tools.
