Daniël Wigboldus has been President of the Radboud University Executive Board since 1 May 2017.
Daniël Wigboldus (1969) is professor of Social Cognition, with a specialisation in person perception in general and stereotyping and prejudice in particular. He is interested in and has published on how stereotypes are maintained through language use, how stereotypical expectancies influence the qualities we ascribe to people, and how implicit prejudice affects impulsive behaviour and face processing.
Professor Wigboldus is also interested in innovative research and teaching models. He believes that good teaching, in addition to good ideas and innovative research, advances science. Finally, he is convinced that the best research and teaching is done in collaboration with others. In 2008 he was awarded the Radboud University Teaching Prize. He was also closely involved in developing the university's vision on education, entitled Kwaliteit, binding en duidelijkheid (‘Quality, Cohesion and Clarity’, March 2013), and was the initiator of the Virtual Reality Lab at Radboud University's Behavioural Science Institute.
Professor Wigboldus is an experienced administrator, having served as dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Radboud University (2013-2017), chair of the Disciplineoverleg Sociale Wetenschappen, member of the Executive Committee of the European Association of Social Psychology (EASP), and chair of ASPO (Association of Social-Psychological Researchers).
