Within KRO-NCRV, I work for an editorial team where we specialise in journalistic research. An important aspect of this branch of journalism is the time of our deadline, which is relatively long compared to journalists working for dailies and fast-news reporting.
Last year, the subject of my research was immigration and integration. Recently, I have been working on the subject of the sharing and gig-economy and disruptions from online platforms, like Airbnb, Uber and Facebook.
I work for different programmes, among them are reporting programme Brandpunt, their online branch Brandpunt+, research programme De Monitor and radio programme Reporter Radio on Dutch Public Radio. Usually I co-operate with daily newspapers and weeklies including, among others, NRC, AD and Vrij Nederland.
I am interested in the Lorenz workshop because I would like to learn about new research methods and tools. Recently, I have started making stories with face and speech recognition. Moreover, the subject of (dis)information is of particular interest to me because news outlets have less time to factcheck and copy more and more existing information.
