What is your education and/or training?

Since 2016 I'm Assistant Professor Media Studies: Archival and Information Studies at the University of Amsterdam. I'm also working as an independent researcher and curator, among others as Visiting Professor and co-director of the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image at London South Bank University (2014-present). I regularly give presentations and lectures at various national and international conferences, and I am a member of juries and supervisory boards, and advisor for funding bodies. I also publish widely on issues of digital art and conservation in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes. Recent and forthcoming book publications include 'Collecting and Conserving Net Art' (Routledge, 2018) and 'Lost and Living (in) Archives' (Valiz, Amsterdam, 2017). Previously I worked as Researcher Digital Preservation at Tate, London (2014–16), and as a Research Fellow at The New Institute, Rotterdam (2014–16), I was Curator-in-Residence at CCS Bard College (2016), Core Tutor at Piet Zwart Institute, Master Media Design and Communications (2011–16), Web curator for SKOR (Foundation for Art and Public Domain, 2010–12), Programme Manager at Virtueel Platform (2008–10), and curator/head of exhibitions, education and artists-in-residence at the Netherlands Media Art Institute (1999–08). From 2008–14 I wrote my Ph.D. at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths University, London, under the supervision of Matthew Fuller.
