I am a phi­los­o­pher working at Eind­hoven Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy and Til­burg Uni­ver­si­ty. In Eind­hoven I work as a post­doc re­search­er on the proj­ect Med­i­cal Trust Be­yond Clin­i­cal Walls with­in the De­part­ment for Phi­los­o­phy & Eth­ics. In Til­burg I am a lec­turer with­in the De­part­ment of Phi­los­oph­y.

My ac­a­dem­ic in­ter­ests cov­er a wide range of phil­o­soph­ical top­ics, in­clud­ing free a­gen­cy, self­hood, mo­ral­i­ty, re­spon­si­bil­i­ty, con­scious­ness, and the phi­los­o­phy of health care (both so­mat­ic and men­tal health care). I have de­vel­oped a theory of the psy­cho­log­i­cal na­ture of nor­ma­tive rea­sons for ac­tion in my PhD the­sis The Nor­ma­tive Will (Til­burg Uni­ver­si­ty 2012). I have al­so pub­lished a text­book on free will, Vrije wil: Dis­cus­sies over ver­ant­woor­de­lijk­heid, zelf­ver­wer­ke­lijking en be­wust­zijn (Lem­nis­caat 2011, with Tjeerd van de Laar), which is cur­rent­ly being used in Dutch high­schools.
