I am a social scientist with a background in sociology and criminology. My main research interests are in the fields of urban sociology, crime and delinquency, spatial inequality, segregation, ethnic diversity, social cohesion and neighborhood effects.
Currently I am employed as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Urbanism, Delft University of Technology. Previously I have worked at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law (Freiburg, Germany) and the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR; Amsterdam). I obtained my PhD degree in 2016 from Utrecht University.
