Recently published: my phd thesis titled 'Becoming Futurists'. 

When I first set foot in the future industry, I noticed how diverse futurists were, producing an array of insightful yet individual reports, workshops, presentations, designs, etc. At the time, I observed that many futurists were actively building towards becoming a profession. To be of value in this process, I decided to pursue a PhD thesis, with the aim to help futurists reflect on their work, and contribute to this relatively new discipline. The result is my book, Becoming Futurists, in which I propose a broader view on professionalization with futurists as exemplary case.

"Why do we all learn about history in high school and not about the future? I trust that one day I won’t have to ask this question anymore. And in expectation that day, I will - on repeat."
