At this moment I work as a 'Young Talent' at SURF, the Dutch National Research and Education Network that is leading innovator in Dutch Higher Education. As part of this I am currently working on our microcredentialing project 'edubadges'. I graduated my master's in Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society (PSTS) at the University of Twente. My interests lie in edge where emerging technologies impact society. I want to bring humanity back into that technology. I wrote my master’s thesis on an analysis of the use of drones in humanitarian action through the postphenomenological framework of mediation theory.
I enjoy active and inter-disciplinary collaboration around technology with a human aspect. This has resulted in the past in: organising a symposium, designing street-lighting, investigating bio-technology, the development of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Philosophy of Technology, policy work in Information Management, and internships at the 4TU Centre for Ethics and Technology and the Foundation of Responsible Robotics.
