Kim Van den Eeckhout
PhD student


I received a BSc in Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton in 2015. I progressed to a Master in Science in Forensic Psychology where I discovered my passion for Cyberpsychology and Cyber Crime.

In the summer of 2016, I conducted an internship investigating the attitudes and acceptability towards Revenge Porn under the supervision of Dr Alison Attrill.

During this year, I was awarded a +3 studentship from the EPSRC and currently, I am working towards a PhD under the supervision of Professor Mark Levine, Dr Miriam Koschate-Reis and Professor Richard Everson. This research will investigate pro social and anti social behaviour online, and further examine de-escalation and escalation of violent or pro-social behaviour in online environments. This research will also attempt to link Social Psychology with other aspects of Psychology such as Cyberpsychology and also Computer Science in order to better understand violence and pro social behaviour online, on e.g. forums and social media.

Broad research specialisms and interests:

  • Aggression and violence
  • Prosocial behaviour
  • Social Identity
  • Group Dynamics
  • Cyber Crime
  • Cyber Violence
  • Forensic Psychology

2016: MScI (first class honours), Forensic Psychology, University of Wolverhampton
