Research

My research focuses on estimating personal values from text. In practice, I use Natural Language Processing techniques to identify the abstract high-level motivations that lie behind our statements (e.g., detecting the fairness vs. in-group loyalty conflict in conversations about immigration). The applications range from supporting citizens in having constructive online conversations (in collaboration with Populytics and the Haagse Hogeschool) to understanding the psychological needs of children and adolescents (in collaboration with the KinderTelefoon).
