I’m a historian of arts and culture, specialized in the development of early modern and modern cultural industries. I currently work as project coordinator and postdoctoral researcher in the program Creative Amsterdam: An E-Humanities Perspective (CREATE).

My research for CREATE concerns the relationship between art and industry since the middle of the nineteenth century in general, and the evolution of Dutch design in particular. Previous research focused on the painting and publishing industries in the early modern Dutch Republic (PhD project), and the organization of the early modern international art trade (postdoctoral project).

Central questions are: Why do some places and times experience extraordinary levels of creativity? And, how far back can we trace the local roots of contemporary artistic and cultural activities, in the Netherlands and beyond? Since 2007, I've explored these questions in my research and teaching on urban development, art markets, and creative industries between 1600 and the present, at the departments of History (Utrecht University), Cultural Economics (Erasmus University Rotterdam), and Urban Studies as well as Media & Culture (University of Amsterdam).

As founding member of  VIZIER: Think Tank Young Researchers Culture & Economics, I promote interdisciplinary research and organise public events.
