Sanne Dekker, Head of WKRU - Science Hub Radboud University

"I would like to make a positive contribution to academic culture through the RYA. It is great to make children enthusiastic about science, and to be able to help build a university where employees enjoy working (together) based on their own expertise and role ."

Beatrice

Béatrice Bonga, Assistant professor at the Faculty of Science

"Science goes beyond finding innovative solutions to societal problems: it also can be simply beautiful to better understand (parts of) our universe. This joy of discovery should be accessible to all, and therefore I contribute to RYA’s goals to improve the academic climate for all members of Radboud University."

Gaby

Gaby Contreras, Assistant professor at the Nijmegen School of Management

''I believe in an academic culture based on inclusive meritocracy, where people of all backgrounds regardless of color, size, accent, or sexual orientation are treated fairly and given the merit, space, and opportunities when deserved. As a member of the RYA, I work towards making of this idealization of academic culture a reality.''

Bryan

Bryan Da Costa Souza, Postdoc at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour and the Faculty of Science

"Education is one of the most powerful tools to promote changes. It invites us to a praxis, an indissociable form of listen-act-reflecting on our experienced world, that nourishes our own and others’ autonomy. RYA is a fertile environment to bridge Education inside the university with the changes we need in society."

Frederik

Frederik van Dam, Assistant professor at the Faculty of Arts

"The complex, webbed structure of the contemporary university creates barriers for academics who work and think across the boundaries of their faculties. As member of the RYA, I am hoping to find ways to make transversal connections visible and to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration, in teaching as well as in research."

Jeroen

Jeroen Dera, Assistant professor at the Faculty of Arts

"Academic education sometimes feels like pressure-cooking, although it is widely known that slow cooking guarantees the best quality. As a member of the Radboud Young Academy, I therefore hope to spark important discussions on educational policy and didactics."

Rogier Rogier Kievit, Professor at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour and Radboudumc
Friederike

Friederike Landau, Assistant professor at the Nijmegen School of Management

"I am excited to be on board the RYA to critically shape conversations about academic culture - to me, this means to cultivate sustainable, ethical and meaningful relations both within and beyond the University!"

Kalijn

Kalijn Bol, Clinical doctor / researcher at the Radboudumc

"Science and care at the highest level in Nijmegen and a workplace to be proud of. From a different perspective, we see different challenges and opportunities to pursue these goals. Standing still is going backwards."

Shari

Shari Boodts, Senior researcher at the Faculty of Arts

"The RYA shows that the university thrives on teamwork. I want to make sure that every employee experiences that feeling of ’team spirit’. Working together towards a greater goal should be a fundamental characteristic of academia."

Inti

Inti Brazil, Associate professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences

Mark

Mark Dingemanse, Associate professor at the Faculty of Arts

"Science is a public good. My goal at the RYA is to help build a better academia where everybody flourishes: more open house than ivory tower"

Martin

Martin Dresler, Associate professor at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging and the Radboudumc

"Getting closer to solutions of complex problems, be they scientific or meta-scientific, requires interdisciplinary discourse. This is the core idea of an academy, and makes much of the appeal to participate."

Chris

Chris Dols, Conservator Radboud Heritage at the University Library

Jorge

Jorge Domínguez-Andrés, Researcher at the Radboudumc

"We academics have a great power of which we are not aware. But we have to work together. The RYA will work on new tools to increase the ties and promote communication in local, national and international contexts. Academia is community.​"

Eelke

Eelke Spaak, Researcher at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging

"The generation of knowledge, insight, and innovation flourishes when academia is healthy, without perverse incentives, and with a strong dose of interdisciplinarity. RYA is a strong supporter of these ideals, which is part of why I feel at home as a member."

Niels S

Niels Spierings, Associate professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences

Nora

Nora Stel, Assistent professor at the Nijmegen School of Management

"As a hub of original thinking and critical analysis, the university has a unique societal function. The RYA’s fresh perspective seeks to help protect and extend this position. Towards an open, autonomous, and accommodating Academy."
