Welcome! I am a post-doctoral researcher at the department of Political Science, University of Antwerp. My research focuses on lobbying and interest representation in Belgium and other European countries. Specifically, I study the interplay between interest groups, public opinion and public policy. Key questions I am examining are when and how interest groups strengthen or weaken the connection between citizens’ policy preferences and public policy outcomes.

You can find a complete overview of my academic work on the page publications. I am also strongly committed to communicating scientific insights in an accessible way with the general public. Below you can find some blog posts and press releases in Dutch and may discover some of my other outreach activities.
