SCIENTIFIC LECTURES FOR EVERYONE
Speakers
Meet the lecturers of Dutch Science Talks project. Under the short biography you will find a link either to an upcoming lecture, or to the video of the already passed lecture.
Janneke Gerards
Professor of Fundamental Rights Law at Utrecht University at the Institute for Jurisprudence, Constitutional and Administrative Law. She holds a designated chair in Utrecht University's research programme 'Institutions for Open Societies' and is a fellow at the Human Rights School of Research (SIM). Since 2015 she has been a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her activities outside the university include serving as a deputy judge in the Appeals Court of The Hague and as a member of the Human Rights Commission of the Dutch Advisory Council on International Affairs.
The research conducted by Janneke Gerards focuses on fundamental rights, equal treatment under the law, judicial review and comparative public law. The interrelation of the European Convention on Human Rights, EU law and national law plays a central role in her research.
Louise Vet
Director of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO), an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Professor of Evolutionary Ecology at Wageningen University. Vet was awarded several international prizes for her research on plant-insect interactions, delivering basic knowledge for the strategic development of sustainable agro-ecosystems (e.g. British Rank Prize for Nutrition). Vet is an elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. She published more than 200 papers in international journals.
Tatiana Filatova
Associate Professor at the CSTM department at the University of Twente in the Netherlands and a Member the Young Academy of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (DJA/KNAW). From 2009 to 2015 Filatova has been working as an economist at the Dutch policy-oriented knowledge institute Deltares.
Her research line focuses on exploring how behavioural changes at micro level may lead to critical transitions (tipping points/regime shifts/non-marginal changes) on macro level in complex adaptive human-environment systems. Filatova studies these processes in application to climate change economics (adaptation and mitigation).
She is particularly interested in the feedbacks between policies and aggregated outcomes of individual stakeholder decisions in the context of spatial and environmental policy-making. The issue of social interactions affecting economic behaviour is highly relevant here. Filatova uses agent-based modelling (ABM) combined with surveys and laboratory experiments.
Daniel Wigboldus
Full professor in social psychology at the Radboud University. From 2009 till September 2013 he was director of the School of Psychology and Artificial Intelligence in Nijmegen. From September 2013 onwards he is Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Radboud University.
His research focuses on person perception in general and stereotyping and prejudice in particular. Among other things, he is interested in how stereotypes are maintained at an interpersonal level through biased language use, how stereotypical expectancies affect spontaneous trait inferences, and how implicit prejudice affects impulsive behaviours. More recently, he has started research on how prejudice and stereotyping affect face processing. Throughout his scientific career Daniel has been interested in innovative research and teaching methods. He believes that besides great ideas also innovative research and good teaching advance science. Finally, he is convinced that the best research is done in collaboration with others.

Pascal Gielen
Pascal Gielen is full professor of sociology of art and cultural politics at the Research Center Arts in Society (Groningen University - the Netherlands) and at the Antwerp Research Institute for the Arts (Antwerp University - Belgium). He is editor in-chief of the international book series Arts in Society.
His research focuses on the institutional context of the arts, creative labour and cultural politics. Gielen has published many books which are translated in English, Korean, Portugees, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.
