Angélique Janssens appointed Officer in the Order of Oranje-Nassau

Angélique Janssens, endowed professor in Historical Demography at FASoS, has been awarded a royal honour: she has been appointed Officer in the Order of Oranje-Nassau!

Congratulations Angélique!

Angélique received this royal medal for her highly creditable achievements in her scientific career in which she manages to create a major social impact. Angélique has the special ability to bring together scientists from different disciplines and different regions in the world and to achieve a very successful collaboration. An example of this is the interdisciplinary and international SHiP network (Study of Health in Port Cities).

She also knows better than anyone how to involve the public in her research. For example, last year she completed the large-scale crowdsourcing project Amsterdam causes of death 1854-1940, in which hundreds of volunteers helped. The importance of knowledge about the control of infectious diseases in the past and an interdisciplinary view of these cases is more topical than ever in our present time.
