About me

I'm a Mathematician, Lawyer and Philosopher.

Currently, I work as a PhD candidate in the research group of Ulle Endriss at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam (funding: NWO Vici Project on Collective Information).

My research interests are Computational Social Choice Theory, Constitutional Law and EU Law, and Democratic Theory. This may seem an eclectic range of interests, but working at the intersections of these fields often leads to new insights. I intend to make both disciplinary and interdisciplinary contributions to each of these research fields.
