Assistant Professor

About Me

I am an Assistant Professor within the Chair of Law, Governance and Technology in the Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability (CSTM) in the Faculty of Behavioral and Management Science. I hold a BA in Political Science (2007, Duke University), an LLM in International and European Law (2010, Tilburg University), and a Master’s in Legal Research (LLM/MPhil, 2011, Tilburg University). I completed my PhD in Law at the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (2016) on a dissertation about the application of the EU antitrust rules to the exercise of monopsony and buyer power. During my doctorate, I was a trainee at the European Commission Directorate General for Competition.

My teaching and research are interdisciplinary with a focus on questions broadly on the intersection of fairness and efficiency. In particular, I examine the constraints and opportunities under (EU) competition law and economic regulation for achieving growth, sustainability and innovation objectives. Of particular interest to me are questions related to the challenges for economic regulation in food, retail, energy, health and labor markets in the context of changing technological possibilities, societal preferences and global patterns of trade.

I approach education from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective. I teach, supervise and design coursework in the following education programs at the University of Twente: Master of Environmental and Energy Management, Master in Health Sciences, Bachelor in International Business Administration, and Bachelor in European Public Administration.

I am an extramural fellow at the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) and a member of the Netherlands Institute for Law and Governance (NILG).
