Personal profile


At Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam I teach a bachelor course in history of mathematics (FEW_X_400652), a bachelor course in history of computing (FEW_XB_0076) and a course in history of AI (FEW_X_400318). Furthermore I organise a master seminar in history of science for those who want more. In cooperation with Gerard Alberts I also teach master courses in history and philosophy of mathematics, and history of digital cultures.


My research focusses on the history of mathematics education and history of mathematical societies. Currently I am writing a double biography of Hans and Susan Freudenthal. Moreover I am actively involved in a subject that is touching upon both history of computing and history of education: the application of programmed instruction in education, 1945-1975.
