Originally Dutch, I've learned 5 spoken and 5 programming languages and along the way I've figured out some principles for what works and what doesn't work to learn something new. My personal challenge was learning Chinese. I couldn't succesfully learn all those characters with existing methods and apps. After creating a Chinese course just for myself, I then started building a platform to make efficient learning techniques available to both students and course creators.
I've got a master's degree in Engineering Physics, worked on spacecraft at Airbus for 2 years, and then another 3 years as a data scientist for London fintech company Iwoca. I'm now working full-time for myself, on my Metacognition framework, my app Traverse.link and consulting for course creators!
