I am assistant professor at the Faculty of Philosophy at University of Groningen. I specialize in 18th-20th century philosophy. Before this, I finished a research master in philosophy (cum laude) and my PhD in philosophy (a double degree) from KU Leuven (Belgium) and University of Groningen (Netherlands). I have also been affiliated with Copenhagen University (2015), Boston University (2016), UC Berkeley (2018), Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (2018), and Prague University (2019).
My book Perception and Reality in Kant, Husserl, and McDowell was published by Routledge in 2020 (London, New York). I also have work published in Continental Philosophy Review, Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences, Human Studies, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, Southern Journal of Philosophy, and International Journal of Philosophical Studies, among others.
I am currently working on De Fenomenologische Traditie – a Dutch introduction to the phenomenological tradition (Boom Uitgeverij), which surveys key ideas of Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Fink, Schutz, Scheler, Stein, Walther, Levinas, and Patocka.
I am also an active musician (Corijn). My latest music is in Dutch and available on all major streaming platforms. Some of my earlier music, recorded on a simple eight-track home studio, is also available online (Corijn). I record instruments myself and songs are written by me (see the link above for more information).
