Hi there - I am currently working at Studio Europa Maastricht. We are a new organisation supported by Maastricht University, Province of Limburg and the Municipality of Maastricht. In line with the joint Maastricht Working on Europe programme, our aim is to position Maastricht as a meeting place for citizen dialogue and debate and establish a Centre of Excellence for research on Europe and European integration. In short: a workplace for a better Europe. For everyone.

Furthermore: I am a recent College of Europe alumni and very much enjoyed living in Warsaw, Rome, Paris as well as the UK. Within European Affairs I am mainly interested in foreign affairs and citizen engagement - outside of that I am a literature and culture junkie.

Get in touch with me if you would like to cooperate on translating European affairs on a local level and if you are interested in stimulating open and critical debate through (for example) our elaborated events calendar. I am always on the lookout for fruitful partnerships that will help us position Maastricht as a new hub and go-to-place for European research and citizen engagement.
