Full bio

I completed a BSc in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Ecology at University of Amsterdam, and a MSc in Media Technology at Leiden University's Institute for Advanced Computer Science.

Since 2016, I work part of my time as an independent designer and practice-based researcher, creating and participating in group experiences and sound art works as a way of learning and investigation. My work has been presented and exhibited at World Forum for Acoustic Ecology Conference (Listening Towards an Ecological Self, 2023), Medley, Berlin (Listening Towards an Ecological Self, 2022), V2_ (Entangling Territories, 2020), NIME, USA (Perturbation, 2018), ArtsIT, Portugal (Perturbation, 2018), Midsummer Night Festival, Leiden (Teaching Plants, 2017) and Eureka Festival, Amsterdam (Emerging Traces, 2016). For a selection of projects I did between 2016 and 2020, see: archive.

In 2019, I joined decentralized art+research collective Shock Forest Group. We have done residencies and exhibitions at STRP festival, Van Abbemuseum (Cosmic Radio, 2023) and Het Hem (Chapter 2WO, No Camouflage, 2019). We also contributed to the e-flux digital exhibition and research project You Can’t Trust Music (2022) with the publication This Forest Was Built To Be Bombed.

Since 2022, I work at University of Amsterdam, where I co-founded the Collective Futures MSc minor program in 2023. I have set up and collaborated on applied research projects together with Climate Majority Project, Waag, Naturalis, Dutch Institute for Nature Education (IVN), KWR, De Ceuvel, Anatta Foundation and Municipality of Amsterdam.

From 2017 to 2021, I was part of Leiden University's Learning & Innovation Centre. I helped found and led experience design and software development at a team working on immersive educational technologies. Our work primarily explored embodied and spatial interactions to enhance learning experiences. In 2016, I was a trainee at Studio Roosegaarde, doing R&D and production support for the projects Glowing Nature, Smog Free Tower and Waterlicht. From 2014 to 2019, I was co-founder of Habitat, organizing cultural events to invite crossovers between art, music and science in Amsterdam.

Since 2021, I'm part of cooperatively built and managed workplace De Ceuvel.
I have a regular practice in meditation and improvisational dance.
