I am a postdoctoral researcher in the research groups Politics & Public Governance (PPG, Departement of Political Sciences) and Computational Linguistics & Psycholinguistics (CLiPS, Departement of Linguistics) at the University of Antwerp. In 2019, I was awarded a senior postdoc grant from the Flemish Research Council to work on the project “Reputation and Structural Reforms of Public Organizations: Explaining Temporal Dynamics”. I also teach at the Antwerp Management School and University of Antwerp, and previously taught at Tilburg University.

Why do some public agencies attract more media attention than others?

Many would agree that, at least in Western democracies, we live in what is referred to as “mediatised societies”. These are generally understood to be societies in which the media somehow penetrate and affect the way central institutions of our societies function. This includes the public agencies responsible for service delivery, regulation, policy formulation or providing subsidies. Not unlike their political counterparts which have been more intensely studied, many of the media departments of public agencies have witnessed a substantial professionalisation in recent years.
