Assistant Professor in Infrastructure Planning, Governance & Methodology


I am an Assistant Professor of Infrastructure Planning, Governance & Methodology at the University of Groningen (2016—current). I am affiliated with the Department of Spatial Planning and Environment of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. I am program coordinator of the Bachelor Spatial Planning and Design of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences and of the research program Sustainable Road Infrastructure between Rijkswaterstaat and the University of Groningen. I am also supervisor and co-promotor on multipe PhD research projects. Since 2018, I am editorial board member of Public Works Management & Policy. I have a PhD in Public Administration from Erasmus University Rotterdam (2015). Previously, I worked at the University of Bamberg (2015—2016) and at Erasmus University Rotterdam (2009—2015). I also held visiting research positions at Rijkswaterstaat and the Bertelsmann Foundation. My research focuses on the design, implementation, and outcomes of collaboration in cross-sector governance networks, with a particular focus on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure planning. I am also specialized in comparative methods, in particular Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). Current main projects focus on the performance advantage of PPPs, the collaborative advantage of PPPs, and on boundary spanning in infrastructure planning. I have published many articles on these topics, as well as multiple books.
