Bio

I am an enthusiastic researcher and educator. The main topics that I am interested in are emotions, honor, culture, stereotypes, work, and ambition.

Emotion: I have published on pride and social comparisons, and how pride expressions are dependent on the immediate social and cultural environment. I am continuing this work by looking into experiences of vicarious pride and the extent to which counter-factual thinking elicits pride.

Honor and honor-related violence: Together with Dr. Rob Ermers, I have developed a theoretical framework to be able to understand the concepts of honor, honor cultures, and honor-related violence from a Western perspective. We also disseminate this knowledge to for example the Dutch Police.

Stereotypes: I have always been interested in stereotypes and how they impact perceptions and judgments. I have looked into how stereotypes about full and part-time working employees affect their career outcomes.

I publish under the name Van Osch
