Bio

In 2015, I obtained a master in law at the Erasmus University Rotterdam as well as a bachelor in the philosophy of law and social sciences (also at the Erasmus University Rotterdam). As of October 2016 I worked at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on a FWO-project about the informal rules of trade in Amsterdam and Lyon in the early 18th century. In June 2019 I was president of the organizing committee of the prestigious XXVth Annual Forum of the Young Legal Historians. I have published on several topics related to the history of mercantile and customary law from the 17th to the 19th century. After a short intermezzo teaching teenagers the beauty of the Dutch language, I was appointed at Tilburg University as a teacher for several courses, including Inleiding Rechtswetenschap, Introduction to the Philosophy of Global Law as well as the supervision of bachelor thesis
