In 2012, I graduated from Vrije Universiteit, where I studied Comparative Arts and Media Studies. My curiosity towards cinema history was piqued by the course The Art of Comparison: Cinematic City by of dr. I. L. Blom, in which insights were gained into theories, histories, and applications of intermediality, in particular regarding connections between cinema and architecture. After graduation, I specified the research towards the cinema The Movies in Amsterdam, which resulted in the book Samen naar de Movies - 100 jaar bioscoop op de Haarlemmerdijk.

After completing my master degree, I was offered a position at VU, where I have gained experience as a junior lecturer. Along with my regular work, I also have researched location-based (mobile) applications.
