Studied theology in Utrecht and Fribourg, and did part of the doctoral research as a visiting scholar at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. In 2018 I was awarded the doctoral degree cum laude for 'Thomas Aquinas on the Beatitudes'. The dissertation was awarded the international 'Veritas et Amor' award by the Circolo San Tommaso. My present research focuses on conversion as a theological category and its sociological and spiritual components. Popular publications cover a wide-range of subjects such as happiness and virtue, ecumenical dialogue, the pontificate of pope Francis and the position of the Catholic church in the public sphere. My scientific publications have been published journals such as Nova et Vetera, Angelicum, Journal of Moral Theology and Incontri.
