As of October 2015 I am Assistant Professor in Political Science. My research concentrates on the politics of the welfare state. I’m particularly interested in issues at the intersection of welfare states, care and migration. More about my research you can read here.

I am also affiliated with two research projects (‘Migration Law as a Family Matter‘ and ‘TransJudFare‘) at the VU Amsterdam.
