Diversity, inclusion, and equality are central themes in the research and teaching of prof. Schaafsma. As a social scientist, her interests lie in cultural diversity and intercultural communication, processes of social in- and exclusion, and intergroup hostility and reconciliation. In 2016, she received a prestigious consolidator grant from the European Research Council for an interdisciplinary project (across more than fifteen countries) on the meaning, value, and expression of political apologies across cultures.
Turkenburg is a tax adviser at the law firm Loyens & Loeff. She advises multinationals on structuring their Dutch, EU or other international investments. She is also on the board of Stichting Topvrouwen. They track and stimulate highly qualified women ready for the boardroom. The foundation aims to make visible talented women and in doing so refute the idea that ‘there just aren’t enough women’.
Prof. Cramer’s main interest concerns the development of models for psychiatric disorders such as depression and anxiety disorders. She received a NWO innovational Veni grant for her research into network psychometrics: methods for exposing the architecture and dynamics of mood disorders.
Prof. Sie works on topics
such as implicit bias, love and moral hypocrisy. Funded with a prestigious NWO Vidi grant, Sie
explored the implications of the
developments in the behavioral, cognitive, and neuroscience for our concepts of
moral agency, free will, and personal responsibility.
In Oxford, and as a Marie Curie Fellow at the UvA, Taylor researched social and ethical frameworks around the use of big data. At Tilburg University, Linnet focusses on the interface between big data, human rights and democratic representation worldwide, in particular social and economic inclusion and exclusion through data.
