I am Assistant Professor in Political Science at the University of Amsterdam, where I am a member and co-leader of the AISSR Programme Group Political Economy and Transnational Governance.
My research concentrates on issues related to the politics of social policy in relation to gender, care, migration and workers representation. I have studied the role of and political responses to migrant workers in social care in different European welfare states, welfare state responses to economic crisis, and the politics of domestic work policy. My current research focuses on the representation and influence of care workers (in elderly care, childcare and domestic work). More information can be found on my personal website and an up-to-date list of my publications can also be found on Google Scholar.
Since September 2021 I am Programme Director of the Social Science Research Master, an intensive two year MA program which trains students to become social science researchers. In addition I teach courses in politics and inequality, social policy, comparative politics and research methods in the BA and MA Politcal Science at the University of Amsterdam.
