Website ESDIT research program (2022)

For the ESDIT research program on socially disruptive technologies we made a design that re-uses the oval shapes in their logo. Since the program involves more than 100 researchers, we made sure that you can apply various filters to the people page to quickly find researchers of interest to you. Make sure to also check out the publication page and the research lines!
Conference website (2022)

Conference website (2022)

For this conference website we did not use WordPress, but the website builder offered by the company that takes care of registration and abstract handling. The out-of-the box options are limited, but fortunately it is possible to add custom styling through CSS code (the language that is also used to style WordPress sites).
Visual summary of advisory report (2022)

Visual summary of advisory report (2022)

The report The Ethical & Societal Challenges of the Upcoming Technological Storm identifies challenges and policy options of converging digital technologies on request of the EU Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA). We created a visual summary of the findings of the report.
Academic resume website (2021)

Academic resume website (2021)

For PhD student Nurit Nobel we created a clean and simple academic resume site that also includes some information on her professional experience and outreach activities.
Biohubs as a Win-Win Collaboration – Infographic (2021)

Biohubs as a Win-Win Collaboration – Infographic (2021)

For the Clean Shipping project we created an infographic explaining the concept of a 'biohub as a win-win collaboration', an important topic in their research project.
Data Visualisations for Clean Shipping Project (2021)

Data Visualisations for Clean Shipping Project (2021)

Why is it important to develop bio-fuels for the shipping sector? For the 'clean shipping project' we visualized six statistics that together answer this question. The data visualisations are shown on the home page of the project website, but would also be suitable for a twitter campaign (where one statistic is shared each day during a week).
Website Clean Shipping Project (2021)

Website Clean Shipping Project (2021)

A website for a research project on sustainable and inclusive value chains for producing maritime biofuels. The research team has been put on the site with the help of our own DIVI Person Plus Module, a plugin that allows you to display researchers with links to e.g. their Academia, ResearchGate and GoogleScholar profiles.
Production short film for research project (2020)

Production short film for research project (2020)

The EU-funded project 'water mining' had, due to the covid measures, an online launch event. All project partners were asked to make a brief film for that occasion to introduce their organization and team. I was asked to make the film for the project's lead partner (Faculty of Applied Sciences at Delft University of Technology), making use of existing footage.
Sub-Site for the Future Markets Consultation (2020)

Sub-Site for the Future Markets Consultation (2020)

For the Future Markets Consultation, a program of events closing off the 'Good Markets' research project, we developed and maintained a website documenting the consultation process, including an essay contest and a series of online events. The site is running on a sub-domain of the Moral Markets web portal, and has its own header, footer, menu and color scheme. It thus looks like a separate site, yet content can easily be placed on both websites.
COVID Sub-Site for DDfV Institute (2020)

COVID Sub-Site for DDfV Institute (2020)

For the newly established working group on the COVID-19 crisis of the Delft Design for Values (DDfV) Institute I created a sub-site within the existing DDfV site.
Website Foundation for Responsible Robotics (2020)

Website Foundation for Responsible Robotics (2020)

The Foundation for Responsible Robotics (FRR) is a non-profit founded by two scholars wishing to create societal impact in their area of expertise. The people involved lacked the time to give the site the update it needed a couple of years after its launch. The improvements that I have made to the site include the header (a banner now immediately informs visitors of their vision) and various newly designed pages on projects done so far (such as the quality mark project and the consultation reports).
Website PRISMA Research Project on Responsible Research & Innovation (2019)

Website PRISMA Research Project on Responsible Research & Innovation (2019)

For the EU-funded PRISMA project I have developed a new site that among others features a toolkit for companies interested in implementing responsible research and innovation. Site visitors can filter the toolkit on various categories to find tools that suit their needs and interests. For the tools in the kit and for the results of the PRISMA pilot projects I have created so-called 'custom post types' with input fields specific for those pages, plus templates to give all tools respectively all pilot results a uniform layout.
Website Research Project ‘Design for Changing Values’ (2019)

Website Research Project ‘Design for Changing Values’ (2019)

For the ERC-funded research project 'Design for Changing Values' I built a site featuring project news and events, the research team and the different research lines that are part of the project. For each research line there is the possibility to display related publications, and the researchers' profiles link to Google Scholar, Academia and ResearchGate where applicable. A signup form for the project's mailing list is included in the footer.
Portfolio Site prof. dr. Jeroen van den Hoven (2018)

Portfolio Site prof. dr. Jeroen van den Hoven (2018)

Jeroen van den Hoven wanted a site with white text on a dark background, with a clean and simple design. With respect to content, one wish was a place to feature past and upcoming speaking engagements.
Portfolio Site prof. dr. Govert Buijs (2018)

Portfolio Site prof. dr. Govert Buijs (2018)

For Govert Buijs it was among others important to have separate pages for each of his research themes. As for the design: what appealed to him was a site where full-width background pictures accompany the page titles.
Web Portal ‘Moral Markets’ (2017-2020)

Web Portal ‘Moral Markets’ (2017-2020)

I developed the Moral Markets platform as one of the valorisation activities of a research project on the same topic, and I am still responsible for site maintenance and content management. The site makes extensive use of 'curated content', so links to hand-picked articles and information elsewhere on the web. However, I also create original content, such as 'book interviews' with researchers in the project.
Website Delft Design for Values Institute (2017-2019)

Website Delft Design for Values Institute (2017-2019)

I became responsible for the site of the DDfV Institute after it had been designed and built by another agency. I added crucial functionalities (such as an event calendar and filterable member page), re-designed various pages (such as the home page) and developed new content (such as a page introducing design for values). I was responsible for site maintenance and content management for two years, while I also worked as project manager for the institute.
Website Dutch Research School of Philosophy (2017)

Website Dutch Research School of Philosophy (2017)

While serving as ad-interim assistant director of the Dutch Research School of Philosophy, I made various smaller and larger improvements to the site, including embedding relevant social media & blog feeds at certain places, adding sharing buttons, a modernization and extension of the home page, and a new menu structure to make room for new content resulting from new initiatives.
Project Descriptions for Platform for Responsible Innovation (2016)

Project Descriptions for Platform for Responsible Innovation (2016)

For the Platform Responsible Innovation of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) I wrote short descriptions of the projects funded up until that moment. I based my descriptions on the progress/final reports that researchers had sent to NWO, as well as additional sources like publications and media appearances.
Website John Stuart Mill College (2015-2016)

Website John Stuart Mill College (2015-2016)

This is a site I worked on while coordinating the start-up phase of the John Stuart Mill College, part of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I found an existing theme that had most functionalities that we wanted - such as the possibility to display a filterable course list. I then worked with a web designer / developer to tailor it further to the needs of the college, meanwhile also developing the contents. This website is no longer online, but has recently been replaced by generic university pages on the study program offered by the college.
Website Human Development & Capability Association (2014-2015)

Website Human Development & Capability Association (2014-2015)

While I was on the executive council of the HDCA I chaired a committee that defined the requirements for a new website for the association. I was then responsible for getting quotes and in the lead in working with the web designer/developer that we selected to create the new site.
Website Dutch Research School of Philosophy (2013-2015)

Website Dutch Research School of Philosophy (2013-2015)

As the first assistant director of the then newly established Dutch Research School of Philosophy, getting the organization a website was one of my responsibilities. We needed it fast to start distributing course information, so I quickly put a temporary WordPress site in place, and then hired an external web designer / developer to improve the looks of the site and take care of more complex functionalities, such as the online member database. I've remained responsible for managing its content until I left the organisation.
