At this moment (summer 2019), I am working on four research projects. Hopefully, each of them will turn into a book, one day. 🙂

♫ – The first is my Phd thesis, which is in its final stages, the Cyborg Mermaid. It is about the ways in which people use modern technologies to re-write ancient mermaid mythologies.

♫ – The second is my ‘auto-ethnography’ – a scholarly & scientific work on autism, that combines my own experiences with my studies in neuropsychology at the University of Chicago (e-learning).

♫ – The third – working title #KingAlfred – is about the representation of Alfred of Wessex in 21st century media, such as series, games and fan art.

♫ – The fourth is a more old school musicological project, together with my friend Mirjam. We research and publish about the musical life in 19th century Utrecht.

Besides these large projects, I also work on stand alone articles and blogs on subjects that interest me. Together with my friend Wouter, I research comic book, and together with my friend Jelka, I look at stalking in the movies.
