Julian Rengers completed a BA in Romance Languages and Cultures, before moving to a different discipline; he did a Pre-Master in Sociology, after which he finished the Research Master of Behavioral and Social Sciences, all at the University of Groningen. Since september last year, he is working on getting his PhD, studying the workplace inclusion of lesbian, gay, and bisexual employees, thereby combining insights from sociology and social psychology. He’s fascinated by how people from different backgrounds come together and collaborate to achieve their goals, which is exactly what organizing the PhD Day entails. In his free time, he enjoys spending time on stage as an improviser.
“I strongly believe that the PhD Day is able to create excellent opportunities for PhD students to get into contact with their peers, to learn from one another, and to get inspired by each other’s passion for their project. I’m very excited to contribute to such a stimulating event!”
