I specialise in energy and climate change law, representing private and public clients domestically and internationally. I advise both private market actors (energy suppliers, intermediaries, consumers, etc.) and various regulators and public authorities at the national and international levels with regard to their energy, climate change and ESG issues.

In particular, I have an in-depth expertise in assisting clients on legal issues related to renewable energy projects (e.g. wind, solar, storage, biogas, hydrogen, etc.), including PPAs; industrial carbon management (e.g. ETS, CBAM, CCUS and carbon removal); EU Green Deal regulation (e.g. Green Claims Directive, CSDD and CSRD); and drafting and implementing energy legislation, regulation and standards. I have also been involved in climate change litigation proceedings.
I hold an LLM on international law and climate change from the University of Edinburgh and completed and defended my PhD in the area of climate change litigation and human rights. Besides, I have worked as a visiting researcher at Tilburg University and as a representative of Belgium at the United Nations Human Rights Council.

I regularly acts as a speaker on the subject of climate change law and litigation, and I am also a guest lecturer in the 'International law and sustainable development' master's course at Ghent University. I am mentioned as Other Key Lawyer in Legal 500."

My mother tongue is Dutch, and I am fluent in English, French and Spanish.
