about me

My academic background is a combination of Science & Technology Studies (STS) and Social & Political Philosophy.

I am fascinated by the role of science in democracy (or the ‘politics’ of knowledge). More specifically, I study how different forms of knowledge are used to legitimize collective action on complex issues such as energy reform, climate mitigation or biodiversity loss.

After seven years in Maastricht, we recently moved back North. I am married to Marleen. We have a son, Gijs. I love non-places, contemporary poetry and slow food.

I am currently working as a lecturer in Qualitative Research Methods.
