My work experience and interests evolve around adoption and implementation strategies of ICT, information and innovation in organizations as well as digitalization of society more general, with a particular interest in policy. I have experience both in government (department of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, dept. of Agriculture and OPTA, the former telecom regulatory authority), as well as in academia and independent research institutes (The Hague University of Applied Sciences, University of Twente, Ryerson University, Penn State University, and the Meraka Institute), in the positions of project manager, advisor, researcher, and trainer / lecturer. I received a Ph.D. in Information Sciences & Technology from Penn State University in the USA and a Master’s degree in Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands (2002).
