In 2008 he obtained his doctorate from the University of Amsterdam with a thesis on the (cross-border) reorganization of legal entities. From 2003 to 2020, he worked at the University of Amsterdam, most recently as professor of tax law at the Faculty of Law and as program director of the bachelor Fiscal Economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration.

Van de Streek conducts research on the taxation of both small and medium-sized enterprises and multinational enterprises. Recurring themes within his research are (i) tax avoidance by multinationals, (ii) interaction between tax and corporate law and (iii) European tax harmonization. Van de Streek is co-author and co-editor of the Dutch standard work on corporate taxation. In 2018 he played a prominent role in the public debate in the Netherlands on the government's intention to abolish the dividend tax. His publication on the settlement agreement that oil company Shell made with the Dutch tax authorities regarding the so-called dividend access mechanism led to a shock in Dutch politics and Dutch society. For this research and his collaboration with investigative journalism he was awarded the Saskia Stuiveling Prijs. Van de Streek is co-founder of the research project Fiscal Transparency.
