My work and studies focus on museums, colonial collections, (digital) heritage, and memory. Subjects with which I came into contact growing up in Amsterdam, and through my Surinamese family heritage.
I graduated in Art History (BA) and Museum Studies (MA), with a minor in programming, at the University of Amsterdam. The interest in programming came from working on a digital archive at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, where I noticed the importance of technical knowledge.
Currently, I’m active as a digital heritage coach for the bureau of the Colonial Collections Consortium in the Netherlands. Our aim is to support the creation of a datahub of colonial collections for stakeholders from countries of origin and provenance research.
