In 2015, Nele Goutier graduated with honours from the two-year Journalism, Media & Globalization master’s programme organised by Aarhus University (Denmark) and the University of Amsterdam. She had previously studied Anthropology and Development Studies in Nijmegen, Political Science in Montpellier (France) and attended a summer school in directing documentaries in Havana (Cuba).
Nele has gained experience as a journalist for paper and multimedia outlets like Human, Filosofie Magazine, RTL Nieuws, Radio Netherlands Worldwide and Het Parool. Nele also acquired research experience at the University of Amsterdam within the NewBeats project. In collaboration with colleagues from five Australian universities, she studied the consequences of declining employment and job certainty in the journalism field.
While working on the above research and in her activities in various editorial settings, Nele saw how today’s journalists are struggling with the fast-paced succession of new digital developments. In response, she decided to make an in-depth study of the opportunities presented by innovations in journalism.
As a researcher, Nele is jointly responsible for the execution of the ‘Immersive Journalism’ project, which takes a closer look at innovative journalism techniques and formats like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 360° videos.
