My research focuses on global tax governance in the broadest sense, including issues such as the international tax policy of states, multinational companies and international institutions like the EU and the OECD. I am particularly interested in the governance issues that relate to the taxation of multinational companies, including topics such as transfer pricing, EU state aid law and the digital economy.
My work received recognition with the granting of the ‘Jaap van den Berge Literatuurprijs’ in 2019 for my contribution to the development of tax law in the Netherlands. My book (‘On the legitimacy of international tax law’) was shortlisted for the IBFD Frans Vanistendael Award for International Tax Law in 2015.
I have an extensive experience of lecturing in a variety of courses such transfer pricing, international and European tax law and decision-making processes. Until recently, I served as the Academic Director of the ‘Tax economics’ programs at Tilburg University.
