I completed my PhD study on the topic of religious giving in 2019. In my thesis, I explored how the interplay between church organization, individual believers and (their interpretation of) God constructs and reproduces the practices and meaning of Christian giving.

Beyond doing research, I am primarily devoted to teaching and tutoring. Over the past couple of years, I have mainly engaged in courses related to the subjects of religion, anthropology and theory.
