Currently I am academic researcher at the Department of Psychology, Health and Technology of The University of Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands. I am also project lead on the project Navigating Stories in Times of Transition: The COVID-19 Pandemic as a Use Case.

I am a social science and humanities (SSH) researcher and draw on several quite different fields in my work, such as social studies of science and technology, organization studies, archaeology, anthropology, public administration, and narrative psychology.

During my PhD in Science and Technology Studies (STS) I researched how knowledge is made from the ground up in archaeological excavation practices. Archaeologists relate to the soil through their embodied senses and a variety of interrelated practices of social knowing. The dimension of sensory, embodied and social doings of archaeologists is however not much researched, and I provided unique contributions to the field.

I furthermore worked as an advisor and coach in multidisciplinary software development and IT operations teams in businesses from 2018 – 2020, where I focused on building and maintaining relations and networks between a wide variety of people and teams.
