I am a women’s human rights advocate and academic with a background in international law and international relations. In my PhD thesis, I examined interactions between the International Criminal Court (ICC) and national accountability processes for sexual violence crimes in Colombia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. My general research interests include women’s rights and gender in international law, transitional justice, and the domestic implementation of international criminal law.
I also blog regularly at IntLawGrrls, and send a lot of tweets out into the world on issues that I care about, mostly women’s rights, gender equality, and international criminal law. In addition to a Ph.D of Laws, I hold an LL.M in Comparative European and International Law from the EUI (2014), an LL.M in Human Rights Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science (2010), and a BA (Hons) in Social Sciences from University College Utrecht (2009).
