Reporting and social media
My journalism career really started as an intern at a metro daily (Rotterdams Dagblad) and a national daily (Algemeen Dagblad) in The Netherlands. I continued to work for the Rotterdams Dagblad as a news reporter, mainly in the evenings after my classes as an undergraduate journalism major at the Hogeschool van Utrecht and during weekends. A few years later, the two newspaper merged and I continued to work at regional newsrooms at times I was not living in the United States continuing my education. While in grad school, I wrote a few sports stories for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and contributed to stories in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about eyewitness misidentification that were created by students and faculty of the Point Park University Innocence Institute. I was also an editorial assistant for The Pioneer, a campus magazine. A few years later, I became the social media editor for Open Tree of Life, an NSF-funded project involving eleven scientists at ten institutions creating digital tools to map all species on earth.
