“Climate change, environmental degradation, rising inequalities and massive unemployment are some of the structural issues of our time. At Finance Watch, we believe that changing finance to make it long-term oriented, stable and sustainable is at the core of what could help fixing these vital issues for the stability of our society.
As researcher in applied economics at the Solvay Brussels Schools of Economics and Management (ULB), I worked on environmental policy, public incentives and developed a keen interest in industrial policy. Previously, I completed an internship at the European Parliament, familiarizing myself with the work of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON). I developed a keen interest in financial and banking regulation when working on the Belgian reform of banking structure for a Belgian Senator. I was also political advisor for the top management of one of Brussels’ welfare institution.
I hold a BA in Political Sciences and a MA in European Studies from the Institute for European Studies of the Free University of Brussels (ULB). I organized contradictory debate and conferences at university for years.”
