At the moment I am in the last stages of finishing my PhD-dissertation "Let's forget about it: the story of art. 17 GDPR". In this research I have explored how the socio-technological constitution of online information sources affects the presence and content of our personal information. My research is based on philosophy of technology, as well as on law.
During my research I have build up a keen and critical interest in the industrialization of "our" online collective memory, and more particular in the social effects of interface design and control, as well as in the implications that the current praxis of the "internet giants" has on power and knowledge (im)balances. My main goal is to (help) build bridges between theory and practice in order to make sure that technology works for us, and not the other way around.
Currently I work part-time as researcher Legal Tech at the University of applied sciences in Amsterdam. The time that I have left I spend at refugeework and other projects. My current other side-project results from my participation in a Deleuze seminar, "Deleuze and the antifascist life". For this I am studying quantified self applications from a Deleuzian and philosophy of technology perspective.
