I am an Assistant Professor at the Public Administration Institute of Leiden University conducting research on climate change and innovation policy, specializing in networking among various governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and the policy design connected to that. 

I earned my PhD in Political Science at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) under the supervision of Prof. Michael Howlett on the topic of policy for and in innovation clusters. I also hold two Master degrees, one from Bonn University (Germany) in Political Science and one in Society, Science and Technology Studies from Aalborg (Denmark) and Lund University (Sweden).
