I am an Assistant Professor working at the Athena Institute of the VU University in Amsterdam. My research focuses on the politics and governance of sustainability transitions. In particular, I am interested in how we can better understand, govern and support transdisciplinary transition experiments and inclusive (policy) innovation, especially in the context of (EU) agri-food systems. Together with colleagues, we have authored publications in international peer-reviewed journals such as Research Policy, Sustainability Science, Agricultural Systems, and Environmental Innovation & Societal Transitions, as well as scientific and policy reports for the European Commission (DG Research and Innovation).
In addition to my work at the VU, I work at the Department of Integrated Environmental Policy Analysis of the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), where we work on the role of reflexive evaluations and transformative governance.
