He studied political science at Leiden University and did his PhD in the social and political sciences at the European University Institute in Florence. Positions he held were at the Delft University of Technology, the University of Twente, and Leiden University, where he also was research director of the Montesquieu Institute until 2014. His teaching for the Institute of Public Administration is about public policy in the Netherlands and the EU, interest representation and public affairs.
