Short biography

Nadine Zeeman graduated in 2014 from the University of Twente where she followed a one-year Masters in European Studies at the Faculty of Management and Governance. Before that Nadine did a Bachelor of Science in European Studies at the University of Twente at the Faculty of Management and Governance (2010-2013).

During her Bachelor and Master studies, Nadine has focused on sustainable welfare states, post-familialism and labour market participation of female migrants. Her Bachelor thesis was a cross-sectional quantitative study comparing the social-political environments of EU member states and their effect on total fertility rates. In her Master thesis, she has studied the sociocultural background of female migrants to find out whether this determines their employment status. Before finishing her Master thesis, Nadine worked as a student assistant at CHEPS. She has been responsible for the literature review for an introductory study into external quality assurance in four higher education systems.

Nadine joined CHEPS as a Research Associate (November 2014), working on the projects U-Map and U-Multirank, where she additionally coordinates a group of student assistants.
