After that, I was a postdoc in theoretical physics at the University of California, Los Angeles (2001-2003), at the Max-Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam (2003-2006), and at King's College, London (2006-2008). Before joining the Faculty of Science, I was a lecturer at the Amsterdam University College, University of Amsterdam (2009-2020).
