I am an assistant professor of Criminology at the Department of Criminology, ESL. The interplay between regulatory enforcement and the behaviour of business organisations is the primary topic of my research. After finishing my PhD in 2012, I worked as a researcher at the Rotterdam Court of Audit where I conducted various empirical research projects focused on the effectiveness of policy implementation. I returned to academia in September 2013. In addition to my research, I am teaching courses on enforcement and on the relationship between research and policy. Also, I am a member of the editorial board of the Dutch Journal of Criminology and of the Dutch Journal of Regulation and Governance. Since January 2016, I am affiliated as an academic research partner at the Dutch Gaming Authority.

The interplay between regulatory enforcement and the behaviour of business organisations has become central in my research over the past years. Using evidence from a qualitative empirical study among 40 firms in the waste industry in the Netherlands, my PhD thesis aimed at understanding how important the threat of legal sanctions is in motivating firms to comply with the law compared to other forms of public and private regulation.

Questions that I aim to answer in my research are: How can we effectively influence the behaviour of business firms and individuals within businesses and how can we prevent corporate and white-collar crime from occurring? What works best and why under what conditions? How do public and private forms of monitoring and enforcement interact?
