I'm Assistant Professor for Technology, Resilience & Europe. I teach regulation in nearly every faculty of the University of Twente, covering health, cybersecurity, business IT, consumer protection, digital markets and competition policy. I also teach economic strategy for governments, as well as digital and SDG transformation strategies.
My research specialises in comparative and international political economy, covering public (economic) governance in Europe and globally, with expertise in financial stability, crisis response and resilience. I am the author of Reshaping Economic and Monetary Union (Manchester University Press 2004), The Regimes of European Integration (Oxford University Press, 2010, and Power Politics, Banking Union and EMU: Adjusting Europe to Germany (Routledge 2018), and a series of articles, chapters and commissioned reports.
I specialize foremost in the design of economic resilience and financial stability—ensuring productive economies and secure financial markets--from a foundation in comparative and international public administration and public policy. Empirical analysis of different national systems is the starting point for determining the scope for international standards, institutions and cooperation.
I've published on macroeconomic policy, financial market regulation, and currently focus on post-COVID responses.
