In 2016, I received my masters in criminal law (cum laude). I started working as a lecturer in criminal law at Tilburg University, where I successfully applied for a PhD-student scholarship in 2017. My PhD research concerned the human rights implications of coercive brain-reading in criminal law. In this context, I visited the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics of the University of Oxford in 2019, twice for a month. On 4 November 2021, I defended my thesis successfully and received the doctoral degree (cum laude).
As of November 2021, I am continuing my research as Assistant Professor at Tilburg University and, as of December 2021, as postdoc at Utrecht University on the NWO Vici-grant 'Targeting the offender's brain. A unified normative framework for the evaluation of neurotechniques in criminal justice' (2021-2026)
