About

I recently finished my PhD thesis titled ‘The Circumstances of Self-Knowledge’ (Radboud University Nijmegen, thesis approved Dec ’16, defence May 23rd ’17), supervised by Marc Slors, Jan Bransen and Quassim Cassam. My research was supported by an individual grant from the The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO, Promoties in de Geesteswetenschappen). My academic page including published & forthcoming papers can be found here. Currently, I teach various graduate and undergraduate courses in practical and theoretical philosophy at the Radboud University Nijmegen, the University of Amsterdam and the Erasmus University Rotterdam. I recently received a Niels Stensen Fellowship, and starting autumn 2017, I will be doing a postdoc on the role and value of self-knowledge in contemporary liberalism in Cambridge under supervision of Rae Langton. For a brief description, see here.
Apart from these ‘strictly academic’ activities, I am  the co-author of a Dutch popular philosophy book on the self (IK. Filosofie van het zelf, Uitgeverij Boom), written together with Sem de Maagt & Leon de Bruin, which will also be used as the textbook for high school philosophy students (HAVO). I am also the co-founder and contributor of a Dutch philosophy blog, Bij Nader Inzien, which has the aim of making academic philosophy accessible to a broader public. Apart from these activities, I enjoy photography.
And coffee.
