About me

Gender Male
Occupation Science Journalist
Location Amsterdam, Netherlands
Introduction I graduated in physics and philosophy and I hold a PhD in physics. I love writing and I love science, so I decided to combine both. I work as a science journalist and author in a broad field: physical sciences, mathematics, computer science, neuroscience, and technology. My specialty is being an allrounder. That’s the great thing of working as a science journalist: if you are truly interested in some topic, you can report about it. I have written more than four hundred articles for various magazines and newspapers, eight books, and I have participated in more than two hundred radio programmes explaining science to a broad audience in the Netherlands. Science and travel are for me excellent ways to discover the world around us and even the world inside us. One of my mottos is that science is culture too. On this blog you can find a selection of my published articles.
