Afterwards, she commenced her studies in law at the University of Ghent from which she graduated in 2016 with great distinction. In the framework of the Erasmus exchange program, she spent one semester at the University of Helsinki. In her final thesis, she examined the role and position of children who are the victim of parental abduction.

In August 2016, she started working for the Institute of Private International Law at the University of Ghent were she is working on a PhD concerning the portability of cross-border civil statuses. Departing from the right to respect for private and family life, her research will examine whether and to what extent the human rights approach is able to reduce the negative effects of limping legal relations.
