Trained as a social scientist and ethnographer I conduct research, create artwork, teach, and write.
As an academic professional my work centres on work and technology in aviation. I am currently a PhD candidate at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
Working with aviation professionals is an important part of my life. My passion for aviation began to take shape as a teenager when I trained for a private pilot’s license. Today, my collaborations with aviation professionals range from interdisciplinary research, lectures, thesis supervision, and informal exchange of ideas.
I am currently working for the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences on a safety culture project in Asia.
My skill set combines social scientific thinking with creativity that I express by sketching social situations and drawing cartoons. This skillset enables me to offer artwork to communicate complex ideas in simple ways to particular audiences.
