My research programmes stand for qualitative inquiries into the everyday politics and practices of governance, institutions, actors and aid in crisis-affected areas, especially in Africa and Asia. They are mainly implemented by PhD candidates.

Since 2000, I have acquired 16 grants and large research contracts with a total value of 8 million Euro. I am a laureate of a VICI grant of NWO and previously of a VIDI grant. About half of my research has been academically financed, the other half is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the British DFID and Dutch development organisations.
