Thanks for your interest in me!
I’m a Dutch young adult living in the North of the Netherlands, born in 1991 but I try to age at my own pace. My current thoughts, and my curiosity imply more about me than the titles I have. This blog is a large part of the things I do. But I am also passionate about my work. Below you can find a short description of my past. Contact me to receive a detailed CV, containing much more information and activities!
Other (somewhere in 2016 -……)
With my increased curiosity in Complex dynamic systems, I have given several workshops and lectures on complexity science. Moreover, I have also created a book full of short stories based on Complexity. Lastly, I am working on creating my own PhD-position (but this is a bit harder than expected). And I write quite a lot on this blog of course.
Measuremen (September 2018-….)
At Measuremen, I work as In-House researcher (read more here). Recently (April 2019) I started working on the analyses and visualization of sensor data, and experience sampling data of office workers. Next to that, I am also active (still) as project manager for the Healthy Workplace.
Hanze University (July 2016-September 2018)
At the Hanze University for applied Sciences, I worked as a researcher and project manager, where I was ambassador for the Quantified Self Institute. I work(ed) on several project related to Quantified Self, coaching, and the adoption of self-tracking technology. My largest project is the Healthy Workplace; where we use sensortechnology, wearables, behavior change, and a stimulating environment to improve the health of office workers (see website in Dutch).
Master degree ( September 2014 – August 2016)
I have a Masters degree in the two year track of Human Movement Sciences at the University of Groningen. In the second year of my Master’s I chose the specialization Healthy Aging. I performed my thesis project at the Quantified Self Institute. And wrote a narrative review about wearable technologies for quantifying stress. Some of the courses I studied were; (exercise) physiology, the (aging) brain, dynamic systems, philosophy of Science, statistics, and math.
Transition program (September 2013 – August 2014)
In order to start my Masters at the University of Groningen, I followed a one year track where I followed courses from the bachelor of Human Movement Sciences.
Bachelor’s degree (September 2009 – August 2013)
At the Hanze University for Applied Sciences, I studied the four year track Sports, Health, and management. At the Hanzehogschool I studied topics like behavior change, lifestyle interventions, muscle physiology, exercise physiology, and coaching.
FysioFit Zuildaren (2010 – 2016)
During my studies I worked as a fitness instructor and personal trainer at Fysiofit Zuidlaren. I have older work experience, but this is not really relevant anymore. Nonetheless, it made who I am today.
Have fun on my website!
