My research develops a process-based approach to art and visual material culture. In particular, I study how materials, tools, and practices partake in the meaning making of art; how images and texts represent and reflect creative practices; and how knowledge about making engenders material literacy. My approach is transhistorical and includes old and new media, ranging from oil paint and clay to aniline dyes and software.

My research is focussed on the complex interaction between people and the natural environment. Some topics within this broad theme have my particular interest:

- the degree to which plant remains (mainly seeds and pollen) in various natural and anthropogenic features reflect the local and region vegetation
- the translation of palaeoecological data into vegetation
- the integration of archaeological and historical sources
- integrated research and publishing strategies of ‘specialists’ and ‘generalists’

Selection of current research projects and cooperations

Arable farming in salt marsh landscape. In 2015, I was awarded a NWO VENI grant to study early crop cultivation in the coastal salt marshes of the Netherlands and Germany. In this project, I participate with a number of people and institutions, both outside and inside academia. An incomplete list:
Prof Dr Karl-Ernst Behre,  Lower Saxony Institute for Historical Coastal Research: review of crops
Dr Welmoed Out, Moesgaard museum: palaeoecological analysis of tillage levels
Dr Niek Scheepens, University of Tübingen: partner for experimental agriculture
It Fryske gea, Landscape organisation of the province of Friesland: experimental agriculture

Swifterbant project. An ongoing project led by Professor Daan Raemaekers studying the Neolithic settlements in the Dutch Flevoland region
