About you (please use English):
I studied History (MA 2012) and Public Management (MSc 2013) at Ghent University. Currently I am a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Antwerp, where my research situates itself in the Research Group on Citizenship, Equality & Diversity. In my PhD research I question which impact the implementation of gender quota has within academia. More specifically, I study staff attitudes towards and implementation practices of the recently introduced gender quota in Flemish academia. Furthermore, I am a main researcher for UAntwerp in the European FP7-project EGERA. Within the project our focus lies on building gender friendly work environments, which covers a broad range of issues such as (resistance to) work-life reconciliation measures, gender equality culture, gender-sensitive communication, and sexual harassment & violence. As I focus mainly on gender equality in higher education, my research interests span across gender studies, science studies, organization studies, and political science.
