Personal profile


Robert is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the H2020 project LINKS, "Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience" is a comprehensive study on disaster governance in Europe. The LINKS project aims to strengthen links between technologies and society for improved European disaster resilience. Within LINKS, Robert is particularly interested in the role that vulnerability and diversity play in disasters and how civil society organisations (formal or informal) contribute to better crisis responses.

Robert's PhD project explored organisational dynamics in refugee reception and integration in the Netherlands during 2011–2021. Drawing from organisation studies, critical diversity, refugee studies, crisis management and public administration, he studied the interaction between governmental organisations, civil society (sporadic, emergent or established) and volunteers and how they engage in the reception and inclusion of refugees. In addition, he examined refugees' role in the processes that claim to receive, integrate and include them in Dutch society.

Robert is interested in the collaboration between different societal actors connected by common complex societal issues and the impact this type of collaboration has on societal resilience. In particular, he is interested in co-creation processes and the potential of co-creation for organizational and societal innovation and change.
