I am a writer, researcher, and strategist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I work as an assistant professor at the department of media studies at the University of Amsterdam.

Together with Michiel de Lange, in 2007 I co-founded The Mobile City, a think tank on new media and urban design.

I also run my own office The Public Matters, a bureau that carries out research on the role of new media in society.

In 2009 I was a visiting scholar at MIT’s Center for Future Civic Media, a collaboration between the Medialab and Comparative Mediastudies.
