I work as a research professor (Forsker 1) in Science, Technology and Society Studies at the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I currently research knowledge dynamics in innovation processes and connect them to political theories on democracy and ideas of Responsible Research and Innovation.This website contains all information on my academic work.
My earlier research has covered a broad range of topics, including sustainable energy transitions, privacy and security, and human genomics. I have always connected these topics to concepts from political and social philosophy, notably ideas of citizenship and public reason.
I took my PhD at the University of Twente (Enschede, the Netherlands). I hold multiple degrees, in electrical engineering, philosophy, and classical music. I earlier worked at Twente University, Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and Leiden University. From 2014 until 2018, I was a coordinator of the PhD programme at the Netherlands Graduate Research School of Science, Technology and Modern Culture WTMC.
