Bio

As a socio-legal scholar I examine the interplay between law and society. Especially the role of the environmental question in the development of law, has my abiding interest from an empirical as well as a theoretical standpoint . In addition to environmental law, I am interested in legal theory concerning spatial planning and criminal law. I teach a number of courses at Tilburg University, among them the introductory course to law and legal theory, the science of law, moot court and I supervise theses. According to the student evaluations my approach to teaching is "understandable, humorous and patient". Together with  Public Administration scholars Eva Wolf and Merlijn Van Hulst, I study the transformative potential of conflict over sustainable development projects in the urban environment in the context of the CONTRA-project, funded by Urban Europe. After work I can be found behind a chess board, willing to play with anyone who enjoys the royal game.
