In 2010 I graduated as Master of Laws cum laude at the University of Leuven (KULeuven) in Belgium where I focussed on public law and EU and international law. During my studies at K.U.Leuven I took up an Erasmus year at Maastricht University in the Netherlands to further specialize in EU and international law. After graduating from KULeuven in 2010, I started a PhD at Aarhus University in Denmark on the regulation of offshore wind energy and grid infrastructure. In 2012 I was granted an Australian Endeavour Award, which brought me to UCL Australia where I was able to do some comparative research in offshore energy regulation. Currently I am a lecturer at UCL Australia where I lead the courses on Energy and Resources Law (SERAG004) and International Policy and Geopolitics of Energy and Resources (SERAG007) and undertake research in these areas.
