Career Profile

With the combination of my double bachelor degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy I have acquired both a deep and a broad understanding of technology and the use of technology.

I like to think and reflect critically about the way we implement and use technology, and how it affects the humans involved - both directly and indirectly. At the same time I understand the issues and challenges of implementations and know the technical language and have practical experiences as developer.
