I am an art historian specialising in museum history and theory. I have specific interests in curatorial practices, as well as in issues of equity within the museum field.
At Radboud University, I work on a postdoctoral project on the first women directing museums in Western Europe. By comparing their careers, their achievements and the challenges they faced, I aim to contribute to a more inclusive reading of the transnational history of museums.
