The main area of research circulates around the participation of interest groups in the European and national policy-making and transposition processes; which includes questions like: How influential are interest groups in politics? Access routes for lobbyists and their effectiveness? And, regulation of interest groups' access to policy-makers.

The second strand of research focuses on the regulation of the live music industry in the UK and EU. The main issues there are: the influence of Brexit on the live music industry and stakeholders' participation in the regulation. Next to these, she works on: E-democracy and environmental policy-making. She is also a coordinator of the Live Music Mapping Project (
