Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD researcher, focusing on the Dutch overseas empire in the early modern period. My dissertation deals with the Dutch commercial and political relations with Denmark and Sweden in the late 17th century. 

I spent the autumn semester 2019 as a guest researcher at the Institute for History in Leiden University, under the supervision of Cátia Antunes and Maurits Ebben.

As of 2022, I am working as a researcher in the Finnish Academia project "Comparing Colonial Laws", led by Academy Professor Heikki Pihlajamäki. In the project, I will focus on the legal history of the Dutch colonies, with special emphasis on legal order and dispute resolution.
