In her Master’s thesis she researched the paintings of Peter Paul Rubens in the estate of Helena Fourment. In February 2021 she was then able to receive her recently obtained Master’s degree in Cultural Management at the University of Antwerp. Here she conducted strategic research on the basis of a case study regarding the Rubens site in Antwerp into the way in which museums can gain more support. During her education she completed various internships and student jobs: in the Rubens House museum as a ‘research curator’; at the Rubenianum as ‘assistant documentation’ and ‘strategic management researcher’, at the Center Rubenianum as a ‘scientific assistant’ at the editors of the Corpus Rubenianum and at the Museum Mayer van den Bergh as ‘collection registration and condition determination employee’. Since the beginning of 2021 she has been working as a researcher within the Culture Management & Cultural Policy competence center where she was responsible for a willingness to pay study for art museums, a benchmark study into the International Cultural Policy in Flanders commissioned by the Flemish government and a study into the possibilities for collaboration between private collectors and public museums and heritage institutions (ongoing).
