I am a political sociologist interested in social and political change. Specifically, I study how social movements succeed or fail in winning wanted outcomes; from mobilizing protest participants, over media attention and public opinion support, to policy change. I defended my phd in 2013, was a postdoctoral researcher of the FWO Flanders (2014-17), a visiting scholar at Stanford University (2015-16), worked at the UvA (2017-19), the 'Civil Society Innovation Flanders'-project (2019) and as a senior researcher for research group Media, Movements & Politics (University of Antwerp). My current research project PROVOKE focuses on the responsiveness to street protest by politicians on social media.
