If you are interested in being supervised by me, please get in touch by email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org. My field of expertise lies in the long-term development of science and technology (including histories of science, global history, and the history of museum collections and archives) and digital heritage (including digital humanities). I am in particular interested in projects in which technology is combined with digital cultural heritage, e.g. from the Twente region. Here is a list of projects, which I am currently supervising and which I have supervised in the past:
