Throughout my education and professional live, I have tried to unite my passion for both the arts and sciences. After having studied Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (UU), I went on to study Dance (ArtEZ/ROCMN) and Arts Policy and Management (UU). Subsequently I worked freelance as a dance artist, performing, teaching and choreographing. In 2016, I started as a PhD-candidate at Utrecht University, where I combined more ‘traditional’ scientific research with choreographic research. Since 2021, I work as a postdoctoral researcher at Radboud University.
