About

As a Postdoc at the Department of Political Science at Stockholm University, I am conducting a research project into the role of social movements in shaping cities responses to the challenges posed by climate change. I am also involved in the development of an interdisciplinary research initiative to integrate environmental research within and across the faculties of humanities, social sciences and law. Drawing on my multidisciplinary training as an anthropologist (MSc) and political scientist (PhD), I combine qualitative and quantitative methods in research on social movements and political participation. I am particularly interested in environmental and urban movements and citizens’ engagement in protest, prefiguration and lifestyle politics. I am a principle investigator in a panel study (2017-2019) of political participation in Belgium. Based on research into the impact of political opportunity structures on activism, I obtained a PhD from the University of Antwerp in 2016. Before coming to SU, I worked as a Postdoc at Keele University (UK) and the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP), where I am still affiliated as an associated researcher. I conducted research into prefigurative environmental activism and (de-)politicization and taught on environmental politics. I am still a Research Fellow at both institutions. In 2015, I was a visiting scholar at the University of Mannheim (MZES). Since 2015, I have been the Convener of the Standing Group on Participation and Mobilization of the ECPR, and I am an Associate Editor for ECPR’s open access journal Political Research Exchange.
