Between 2011 and 2015 I was employed by the Dutch Police Academy, where I worked on my dissertation A Public Anthropology of Policing, defended at Tilburg University. Since 2015 I work as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Culture Studies of the same university. I publish my research on the intersection of anthropology and criminology in related journals such as American Anthropologist (with J Simpson and K Karpiak, 2015), Critique of Anthropology (2016), British Journal of Criminology (2014), Anthropology of Work Review (2014), Social Anthropology (2016), and Theoretical Criminology. I'm currently finishing my book "Police Unlimited: Policing, Migrants, and the Values of Bureaucracy" for Oxford University Press.
