Biography

Biography

I joined Middlesex University to develop MDX research culture and capabilities through a wide range of individual, departmental, School and Faculty-wide initiatives as well as University-wide advice on international research rankings and MDX reputation management. 

Originally from the Netherlands, I have more than 30 years of experience in academia, and before joining Middlesex I have worked at six different universities in three countries. Most recently, I was Associate Dean Research at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

Teaching

My appointment does not include any direct teaching responsibilities beyond guest lectures on my areas of research expertise and a range of sessions in the PGR coursework programme. 

However, I continue to mentor junior academic colleagues. In addition, I run many seminars and workshops about academic publishing, research impact, social media engagement, promotion applications, and general academic career strategies.
