Digital Archaeologist

As a digital archaeologist at the University of Amsterdam I support fieldwork and research with my expertise in Geo-ICT, quantitative modelling and image based modelling, as well as the operation of drones.

Coordinator 4D Research Lab

The 4D Research Lab (4DRL) serves scholars who conduct research into the material past in the faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam. It provides a wide range of computing facilities, 3D scanners, and 3D modeling programmes, as well as technical expertise to assist researchers.

PhD research

As a researcher (PhD candidate) I focus on the analysis of archaeological methodology, in particular for archaeological field survey, applying new technology and quantitative techniques to get a better grip on complex archaeological features and finds.


As a teacher I develope classes for ICT-related applications, such as GIS, statistics, 3D modeling and drone operations, and I am involved with various Blended Learning programmes applying AR and VR technology to innovate teaching.
