Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the study of institutional change in the field of universities, and their role in society and economy.

I am member of the ESRC/HEFCE-funded Center for Global Higher Education and Co-Investigator of an ESRC-funded project on 'Governance in Higher Education'. Recent research projects were supported by the Dutch Research Council, the European Science Foundation, the German Ministry of Education and Research, and the Ford Foundation. I am elected member of the Academia Europaea and of the German Academe of Science and Engineering, and Honorary Fellow of the Society for Research in Higher Education. My advisory work includes membership in the Advisory Committee for Research and Knowledge Exchange of the Higher Education Funding Council for England, in the German Advisory Council for Education, and in the R&D committee of the European Federation for Management Development.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am very interested in supervising new PhD students who share a passion for research and have a particular interest in the study of the field of higher education and the university as an organisation.
