I am an assistant professor at the Department of Journalism and Media Studies at the University of Groningen. My doctoral research work was on the norms and practices of journalists working in South Sudan.

My current work is on the norms and practices of bearing witness by journalists in geopolitically marginal conflicts, as well as the role of affect/emotion in the work of journalists under pressure. I also pursue interests in media and development, the sociology of humanitarianism, conflict and representation, and post-conflict archive-building.

I tend to write and take a great deal of photographs when I travel.
