My name is Tim Riswick, a PhD Candidate at the Radboud Group for Historical Demography and Family History, Department of History, Radboud University Nijmegen. In addition, I am a lecturer in economic and social history, University of Groningen

Moreover, I always like to try to promote and encourage young professionals, which is also the main reason for chairing the Association for Young Historical Demographers.
