Christa is a third-year BSc student in Security Studies at Leiden University. At present, she is also participating in the honours track of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs, which allows her to broaden her academic lense even more. During her studies, Christa has developed an interest in the study of far-right extremism and the way towards radicalization. She believes this form of extremism to be an increasingly prominent issue that is worth studying in light of contemporary world politics.
As of now, she is participating as a research intern at the DRIVE Project and is conducting research on the relation between spatiality and extremism. Christa considers this project as a unique learning experience and is confident this research will inspire her academically.
