Personal profile

Research

My research interests vary from visual anthropology, military culture, morality, human rights, conflict, Latin America and phenomonolgy. I have done long-term fieldwork in Venezuela and Argentina, and I also have worked on Cyprus. My new research focuses on the Venezuelan crisis and refugees in the neigboring countries.

Personal information

The professional is personal. That's what represents me best as an academic. The combination of fieldwork, writing, and filming are my personal blend of doing anthropology. My regional interests and experiences are definitely Latin America, with a focus on large cities. In total I lived for more than 10 years in Venezuela and Argentina. I am co-founder of the cultural platform DoKumento and editor of the Dutch anthropological journal Etnofoor.

Teaching

My teaching experiences range from ethnographic methods, violence and trauma, multimedia and film, and introductory courses in Cultural Anthropology and Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Education

In 2006, I received a Bachelor degree in Language and Culture Studies, with a specialization in Latin American Culture at Utrecht University. My Master degree (2007) in Latin American and Caribbean Studies is also from Utrecht University . In 2016, I  received my Doctoral degree in Cultural Anthropoly at Utrecht University for ethnographic research on trials for crimes against humanity in Argentina.
