I am currently employed as an assistant professor at the Molgengraaff Insituut of Private Law of Utrecht University. Also, I am finishing my PhD at the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University and in that capacity also attached to the Maastricht European Private Law Institute (MEPLI). The topic of my thesis is: Personal Data in Public Land Registers. I was the assistant-editor of the European Property Law Journal (EPLJ). Currently I am also an editor of the Maandblad voor Vermogensrecht. In 2012 I was a visting lecturer at the China-EU School of Law (CESL) in China. In 2015 I was a visiting lecturer on two occasions at Tilburg University, in the Global Law Program. Where I returned as a lecturer from 2016-2017.
In the summer of 2014 I went to Harvard Law School on an independent research visit. There I met the people with whom I would co-found The Interdisciplinary Internet Institute (The iii) in September 2014.
Prior to starting my PhD research I conducted research as a student-assistant in the areas of (Islamic) Family Law in particular in (Dutch) Private International Law; Criminal Procedural Law, and the Law of Names. This broad interest in law continued after graduating and I got to work on the European Parliament Study into Locus Standi while working on my PhD.
