Hi, I’m Renske! Since the beginning of 2020 I’m working as a Junior Researcher at the chairgroup Health and Society. I am analysing data from the ‘The Overall Evaluation of Healthy Futures nearby’-project using Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). QCA is a relatively young research methodology that, using Boolean algebra, bridges qualitative and quantitative data analysis. I am pleased to be working on this project aiming to reduce inequalities in health by promoting the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged families in the Netherlands.
The chairgroup Health and Society and its nice working atmosphere are familiar to me. During my BSc and MSc Health and Society in Wageningen, I received education, thesis- and internship-guidance from the HSO-team. Besides, I was lucky enough to work as a student-assistant at HSO for some years. Since graduating, I have been working together with Annemarie Wagemakers and Franshelis Garcia on research articles about menstruation stigma.
On a personal note; in my spare time I like lifting weights, going to concerts, volunteering and going out to eat. I am very excited to now be a part of the HSO-team, to develop myself as a researcher and to help contribute to a healthier and supportive society!
