I’ve studied sociology for many years, which shaped the way I look at the world. I wrote a phd at the University of Amsterdam about emerging contemporary art markets in Russia and India, how they develop and how market practitioners make sense and make decisions in a new and changing environment. Taught a number of courses about sociology of art and cultural industries at Erasmus University Amsterdam. Then I took a leap into a new industry and a new role. Now I am an HR specialist supporting fast organizational growth and change from within an exciting biotech company.
