We are Tilburg University
My education and research focusses on the regulation and governance of the network industries. I am also founder of Oyster Legal (www.oysterlegal.com). In 2006, I defended my very well-received dissertation on independent competition authorities and good governance at Tilburg University (Boom Juridische Uitgevers, 2006). I am specialized in EU law, competition law, economic regulation, energy law, national constitutional and administrative law and issues of good market supervision. In 2010, I received a prize from the Association of Competition Law for the best article on the role of non-competition interests in European and national competition law. In 2017, I received a long-term research subsidy from NWO to do research in the context of the Next Generations Infrastructures Program for research into the promotion of data driven innovations in the infrastructure sectors.
