Miriam's research examines how property theories have shaped the development and interpretation of global economic law and contributed to creating, mitigating or perpetuating inequality and environmental degradation. Her work focuses on the intersection of international and European economic law and embraces a Law and Political Economy approach.
Supervised by Professor Dr. Ingo Venzke (Professor of International Law and Social Justice) and Dr Maria Weimer (Associate Professor of EU law and Regulation), her doctoral research is part of the joint Sustainable Global Economic Law project conducted by ACIL, ACELG and the Amsterdam Center for Transformative Private Law. Her research is funded by a grant from Dr. JA Kuijperfonds.
Miriam studied philosophy and law in Bonn (Germany) and Toulouse (France). She obtained her First German State Examination in 2020 and her LL.M. in Public International Law from the University of Amsterdam (cum laude) in 2022.
Before joining UvA, Miriam worked with a French arts and human rights association and at the Law Faculty of the University of Bonn in Germany as a Moot Court coach and student research assistant at the German, Foreign and International Criminal Law chair. She gained further valuable research experience at the Institut International des Droits de l'Homme in Strasbourg, France, the Permanent Mission of Germany to the UN in Geneva, Switzerland and as a legal consultant at UvA's Business and Human Rights Law Clinic.
