Professional career history
I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Language and Literature as well as an Advanced Master’s Degree in Literary Studies from Leuven University (Belgium). Prior to coming to Maastricht, I was awarded fellowships from the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) to write a dissertation on the reception theory of the German critic Wolfgang Iser and to do postdoctoral research on cultural heritage, consumer culture and the literary representation of environmental issues.
