By combining the hermeneutical tools of close reading with data-driven quantitative analysis, I explore alternative ways to study intersections of 'the social' and 'the literary'. More specifically, I develop algorithms to pinpoint how real world social structures are mirrored, echoed or transformed in large collections of (Dutch) narrative fiction.

As Assistant Professor of Modern Literature and Digital Culture I teach courses on:
- (Modern and Western) literature and culture
- representations of technology and datafication in (popular) culture
- Digital Humanities and data-driven methods and techniques
