I am an external PhD researcher at Tilburg Law School and Tilburg Center for Regional Law and Governance (TiREG). I am interested in the governance of complex societal challenges such as the energy transition. I investigate processes of learning, collaboration, coordination and decision making on the regional and local level. At this moment I work on my PhD project in which I analyze experimental approaches for realizing energy neutral neighborhoods in 10 urban living labs in the Hart van Brabant region.
