Personal information

I am an Assistant Professor in International Relations in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. From 2018 to 2020, I was a Postdoctoral researcher in the School of Global Studies at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. In 2017, I received my PhD from Maastricht University.

My research interests are in the areas of authority and legitimacy in new modes of global governing, with a specific interest in global Internet governance, the global fight against corruption, multistakeholder governance, soft multilateral governance, and mixed-methods research. My research has been published in Cooperation and Conflict, Global Governance, and Review of International Political Economy. I have also done consultancy work for the United Nations on the use of peer review in financial integrity matters.

My PhD Thesis (Maastricht University, 2017) is entitled: ‘Combating Corruption the Soft Way: The Authority of Peer reviews in the Global Fight against Graft.’ It was awarded the 2018 Maastricht University Dissertation Prize for best PhD Thesis defended at the university in 2017 and 2018 (all disciplines except medicine and life sciences).

Alongside research, I enjoy teaching international relations, political science, and research methods. In the fall semester of 2020, I will be teaching in the Bachelor Political Science (course: ‘State, Power and Conflict’) and the Master Political Science (course: ‘Applying Core Debates in Political Science’) at the Vrije Universiteit.
