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

I am a multidisciplinary researcher at heart and draw on several quite different fields (such as STS, organization studies, archaeology, anthropology and narrative psychology) in my work.

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 knowing. The dimension of sensory and embodied doings of archaeologists is however not much researched, and I provided unique contributions to the field of STS and archaeology.

I furthermore worked as an consultant and coach in software development and IT operations (dev-ops and agile/scrum) teams in businesses from 2018 – 2020, before returning to academia.
