I have been teaching at University of London Institute of Paris since 2016.

My undergraduate studies were completed at Groningen University, followed by an MA diploma in international economics and European studies from Johns Hopkins University. After which, I continued my graduate studies at Queen Mary University of London. I was awarded my PhD in 2018 with my thesis: ‘Changing Land Governance in Quadruple Transition: Case Studies from Bosnia-Herzegovina & Kosovo’.

I am interested in academic research on the political economy of state-building, natural resource governance, Europeanisation, and institutional change. 

In addition to a teaching post at the University of Groningen, I have also worked for Western Balkans-focused think tanks and for the EU in Brussels and Washington. 

Currently, I live in Brussels and commute to Paris, as well as Antwerp — I am also a lecturer at Antwerp University.
