Field of interest

My research interests are European and world history from the late nineteenth century onward.


In my PhD dissertation I examined the influence of colonialism on the European movement in France and the Netherlands, two 'imperial nation-states', in the interwar period.

I am currently working on two projects. The first project examines conceptions of 'Eurafrica' across Europe from the late 19th century onward.The second project entitled 'Civil society and the rise of global governance', examines civil society networks surrounding the League of Nations and the United Nations (focussing on the International Federation of League of Nations Societies and the World Federation of United Nations Associations).

Teaching activities

My teaching experience reflects my joint interest in European and world history, having taught and supervised in these fields at the University of Cambridge, the European University Institute and Utrecht University. I am currently involved in teaching European integration history from a global perspective as well as teaching courses on euroscepticism at MA and BA level.

Curriculum vitae

I have a Ph.D. in history from the University of Cambridge and an M.A. in History and an LL.M. from the University of Leiden, in the Netherlands. I have also studied at the University of Edinburgh and at University College London, as well as at Yale University as a Fulbright Scholar. Previously, I was a Max Weber postdoctoral fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy and held a NWO Rubicon research grant at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.
