We are Tilburg University

Bio

I am highly interested in employment and social policies, especially the labour market position of 'atypical' groups. Usually, I place this interest in the setting of European Social Policies, and I have gained a good track record in researching the European Semester. Moreover, my research looks at youth (un)employment, fixed-term work, part-time work and flexicurity.

Teaching

My teaching focuses on European social policy, European labour law, Comparative and European Employment Relations. Moreover, I organise study-trips to the EU Institutions in Brussels.

Courses

Collaboration

Current projects include:

- Interreg EYES project on youth eunemployment (with 5 EU regions). Video Tilburg meeting October 2019
