She studied sociology at the Catholic University of Leuven and holds a PhD in Women’s Studies from Utrecht University (2004, Women Resisting Secularisation in an Age of Globalisation. Four Case-studies in a European Context), was a Marie Curie fellow at the University of California Santa Cruz and Utrecht University (2006-2008), and is currently a fellow at the Centre for Humanities at Utrecht University.
