    2012 – 2013 Graduate Student Assistant, University of Amsterdam

    2011 – 2012 Semantic Web Developer,, Delft

    Librio is a service in the form of a web application which started out with the aim to make lending and trading books attractive to students. In the summer of 2011 a pilot study was conducted with students at the Delft University of Technology. This pilot led to the decision to aim for a broader audience of readers. Our plan for the coming year is to focus on 'Librio Labs', a series of experiments that will be conducted with prototype versions of a new social cataloging application.
    2008 – 2011 Research Assistant, Delft University of Technology

    Since 2007 I have been involved in a research project with the goal of creating a tool for Industrial Design Engineers, which will assist in finding and sharing relevant information and knowledge.

    My individual research outcomes within this project have been descriptions of which information and knowledge is relevant to people working in the field of Industrial Design Engineering, and of the role that users need to play in detailing these descriptions.

    Together with two co-students and two supervisors, we have created a first web-based implementation of the tool in 2008: WikID. My work has ranged from server administration to the design of specific articles.
    2007 – 2009 System Administrator, Hotel de Plataan, Delft

    During my studies at the Delft University of Technology I was responsible for the systems administration at a privately owned hotel. This was a part-time job at which I maintained seven workstations and three servers. Additional ICT services included purchasing and maintaining all musical and security equipment.

    Besides technology-oriented tasks, I was also responsible for the user experience of my co-workers. In this context I wrote a series of tutorials on new and modified systems, and I tried to refine the systems designs until my colleagues viewed them as enhancements to their job experience.

    Adviesbureau Ruimtegebruik is involved in making projections of future traffic flows which are influenced by proposed construction projects.
