I obtained a bachelor (2010) and master degree (2011) in history and a master degree (2012) in cultural studies at the University of Leuven, Belgium. Currently, I am writing my dissertation at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, on the social and cultural facets of early modern diplomacy. My interest in diplomacy has also led me to work at the Dutch Consulate in Florence.
Furthermore, I am involved as editor in the establishment of a new online journal completely devoted to early modern diplomacy entitled Legatio: The Journal for Renaissance and Early Modern Diplomatic Studies.
