I am an affiliated researcher at the Archaeology department.
Previously I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research with the RaceFaceID team (2017-2018) and as a lecturer at the Archaeology department (2016-2017). I have also been working for the Satricum Research Project (1995-2011) for which I served as a deputy director and field director from 2000-2009, and for the New Perspectives on Ancient Pottery Project (2007-2013) for which I published and presented various book chapters, articles and papers related to my PhD project.
I co-run PRAXXstudio, an experimental greenhouse for cultivating creative and research practices for alternate histories, kindly supported by the Central Library of UvA; and platformargos, an initiative to stimulate research on the history of archaeology, with special care for unlocking archaeological archives.
Outside of the university I work as a policymaker and archivist for the South Africa House, a small institute on the Keizersgracht with a large collection of South African literature and archives of the Dutch-South African relations of 1880-1940. I also work as a freelancer for those in need of digital knowledge care.
