I am working as an associate professor in International Development, Globalization and Poverty at the Institute of Development Policy, University of Antwerp (Belgium). I am codirector of the Centre d’Expertise en Gestion Minière (CEGEMI) at the Université Catholique de Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
My current research interests lie in the global and local development dimensions of extractivist projects, addressing questions about more socially responsible and inclusive forms of globalization. I study, among others, at global regulatory systems and development outcomes in the South (e.g. CSR), 'linkages' and local spillovers from mining activities, labour markets, informality and precarity in the extractive industries, and health in artisanal and small-scale gold mining.
