Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Schools of History, Culture, and Communication (ESHCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, working on the HORIZON Europe funded RECHARGE project "Resilient European Cultural Heritage As Resource for Growth and Engagement". Our team investigates how participation can be a driving force of innovative business models for the sustainable financing of cultural heritage institutions (CHIs), fostering accessibility to cultural heritage in a post-Covid Europe.

I got my PhD in Heritage Studies at the University of Antwerp (ARCHES team), in close collaboration with TUDelft (HEVA UNESCO Chair), with the thesis "Participatory heritage practices in, for, as, sustainable urban development". My experience includes projects for public and private institutions, both in the academic and professional sphere, within fields of cultural policy, sustainable tourism, community engagement, and strategies for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As an academic and heritage professional, I'm dedicated to supporting the planning, monitoring, and assessment of participatory heritage practices, focusing on capacity building and resource generation for achieving the UN 2030 Agenda.
