Research

My current research interests include: (a) institutional and systematic impacts of internal and external evaluation of quality (of education, research, and of institutions) in Europe, amongst other things focusing on the Bologna process, (b) quality and excellence in higher education, and (c) transparency tools (classifications and rankings).

I also take part in CHEPS’s Training & Consultancy projects around the world, focusing on quality assurance and accreditation issues.
