I am Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Groningen. I specialize in 18th-20th century philosophy and, more recently, in cognitive archaeology (the evolution of the hominin mind). Before this, I finished two Bachelor degrees, a Research Master in philosophy (cum laude), and PhD in philosophy (a double degree; KU Leuven and University of Groningen). I have also been affiliated (as research visitor) 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. I published related work 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.
My Dutch introductory book to the phenomenological tradition was published in 2021 (De wereld als verschijning: fenomenologie en de twintigste eeuw, Boom). This book surveys key ideas of Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Scheler, Stein, Fink, Schutz, Levinas, and Patocka. It is available in all major bookstores throughout the Netherlands.
I am also an active musician. My latest music is in Dutch and available on all major streaming platforms. I record instruments myself at home and songs are written by me (see the link above for more information).
