About me

Since April 1stI work at Wikimedia Netherlands in Utrecht as an event organizer. Before I joined Wikimedia Nederland, I was a volunteering with organizing events regarding the gendergap in the scientific community.

I have a bachelor degree in museology during which I gained experience as a conservator working in museums. Currently I am in the final stages of my master: History and Philosophy of Science and the Humanities. Here I focus on how knowledge flows through a society. I also specialize in the history of emergency medicine.

My work

As an event organiser take care of the logistics of the events of Wikimedia Nederland. One of the things I do is to find the right volunteer for the right job. So one of the perks is I get to know the dutch Wikimedian community. Here I meet wonderful people from all walks of life. Their reasons to put in their precious spare time are inspringing.
