My research has been focusing on international Human Resource Management, and particularly expatriates. With my PhD research In Touch with the Dutch my interest in expatriate-host country national interactions started, a topic I have pursued since with several publications, and about which I have written a practitioner-oriented book. Breaking out of the Expat Bubble will come out on the 5th of February 2024! Please find below a list of my publications, with summary blog posts and links to the articles, as well as links to other current and past research projects.

Are you interested in reading an article but you don’t have access? Then please send me an e-mail at msvb[at] and I can send you an individual copy. Enjoy the read!
