I am a philosopher, researcher, and teacher with a specialization in conceptualizing the complex dynamics of embodied, material, ideal, social, and cultural phenomena. My core specialization is in theorizing sex-gender.
I am also a trained socio-cultural anthropologist and musician. I live with my partner in North Holland, where we share a home with two cats.
Feel free to drop me a line, if you're curious about my work or interested in collaborating. I am always interested in a chat.

I am currently preparing a postdoc research project. The project has at the moment two potential further directions: Either, I will focus on further integrating the methodology and conceptualization of existential situations with the tools of systems theorizing; Or, I will develop these by addressing normative questions and potentials of transposing the structure of critique in ordinary practices to emancipatory change.
I have completed and successfully defended my PhD research project on what it means to be of a particular gender, with a dissertation entitled "Genders as Genres: Understanding Dynamic Categories", supervised by Prof. dr. Beate Rössler and Prof. dr. Robin Celikates (FU Berlin). A publication of the book is in process and the dissertation is thus embargoed until further notice; until then, please get in touch with me if you are interested in my work.
My research is supported by the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis, I am hosted by the Department of Philosophy.
