  • Profile

    I am a post doctoral researcher in the social psychology department at the University of Amsterdam, working with Disa Sauter. My research examines what causes impairments in emotional communication between native Dutch people and Arabic refugees. In this research I probe two mechanisms thought to underlie this impairment: group identification and cultural exposure. Specifically, I investigate the relationship between emotion recognition and Dutch perceivers’ attitudes towards refugees, and the role of cultural exposure in cross-cultural emotion recognition. My project is funded by a Refugees in Science/Hestia grant from the NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research)
