When I started studying criminology at the Erasmus University in 2002, I never envisioned myself extending my stay there beyond the course of the mandatory curriculum. However, I am proud to say that I am still at the EUR. After receiving a PhD in criminology at the Erasmus University in 2016, I joined the department of criminology as an assistant professor.

My PhD research was an ethnography on the embeddedness of crime and identity for which I conducted fieldwork among members of the Dutch Rollin 200 Crips. As a researcher, I am interested in street culture, gangs - ‘traditional’ street gangs, outlaw motorcycle gangs and hybrid gangs - and organized crime. As a trained qualitative researcher, I have a special interest in looking for new ways of collecting data (social media, digital communication, (rap) music).
