My work

The EU-desk of the investigative platform Follow the Money aims to accelerate EU investigative journalism. We initiate and coordinate European journalism projects regarding EU affairs together with media from all over Europe. For example: Recovery Files and MEP Misconduct.

In order to stimulate a broad audiance to take notice of EU affairs, I have initiated an EU late night comedy show in 2021 together with performer Kelly Agathos: the Schuman Show!

As I am a firm believer that European journalists should cooperate more, I am keen to share my knowledge with other journalists, either within a joint investigation or by providing courses and workshops.

I provide courses and workshops on EU Paper Trailing for beginning and advanced journalists, such as the students of the Universities of Groningen, Amsterdam, Brussel, Gent, Antwerpen and Leiden, the emerging journalists that join the Lighthouse Sessions, and for the Summer School of the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN).

Furthermore, I provide lectures to government officials and (independent) academic thinktanks about democratic challenges.
