My PhD research focused on the proportionality defence in European patent law, but I have published on all aspects of European intellectual property law. My other research interests include the intersection between intellectual property and human rights law, legal methodology, and lawmaking through courts. 

I obtained my bachelor’s degrees in law (2010, with distinction) and literary studies (2012, cum laude), as well as my master’s degree in Legal Research (2012, cum laude), from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. In 2013, I obtained an LL.M. from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law and was admitted to the Amsterdam bar that year. I obtained my PhD thesis in 2023 at the European University Institute.

I am currently an assistant professor at the Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam and a senior associate at HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER in Amsterdam.
