Quantitative Finance (2015 cohort)

I am a DPhil candidate in Law and Finance at the Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. My research focuses on the regulation of systemically important financial institutions (“SIFIs”), particularly global systemically important banks (“G-SIBs”), and the effects of such regulation on the (re)organisation of the banking sector and systemic risk.

More generally, my research interests include law and finance, corporate governance, banking law and economics, financial regulation, and systemic risk.

I hold a BA(Hons) in Law and Economics from University College Utrecht (partially completed at UC Berkeley and the Berkeley School of Law), an LLB in Dutch Law from Utrecht University and an MSc in Law and Finance from the University of Oxford. My professional experience includes work as a summer analyst at Goldman Sachs (London) and as an intern in the Corporate/M&A team at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek (Amsterdam & New York). Since 2014, I am a "Global Shaper" at the World Economic Forum. I am currently one of the associate editors at the Oxford Business Law Blog.
