Biography

I completed my Bachelor in European Studies at Maastricht University in 2009 and a MSc in Research Methods, with focus on Global Environmental Governance from the VU University Amsterdam in 2013 (honours degree). Before joining Sussex University in 2013, I worked at the the Institute for Environmental Studies at the VU University and a number of nongovernmental organisations. I recently defended my PhD dissertation with the title "Conserving power: An exploration of biodiversity offsetting in Europe and beyond". I am involved in a number of social and ecological justice campaigns across the UK, and am particularly interested in the political economy of coal and fracking.
