Joyce Neys is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) at Erasmus University Rotterdam and is a member of the PhD council of the Graduate School.
She is currently working on the research project Empowered Citizens: How New Media Facilitate Civic Engagement under supervision of prof. dr. Jeroen Jansz. The project investigates how citizens use different forms of new media as a political tool. In particular, I am interested in citizens who create their own media content, such as online political video games, political remix videos and political machinimas.
Neys is also a lecturer in the International Bachelor Communication and Media (IBCoM) programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam where she teaches Introduction to Statistical Analysis and the Research Workshop Learning by Doing: New Media and Civic Engagement as well as the MA seminar Participating Audiences.
