I currently teach at the University of Amsterdam, Department of Dutch Linguistics and am involved in four undergraduate programs in the 2019–2020 academic year: Dutch Language and Culture, Linguistics, Amsterdam University College, and the brand-new program Cognition, Language and Communication. I obtained my BKO/University Teaching Qualification in 2017.
