I’m a Dutch PhD student currently based in the UK. Back in 2014, I’ve started researching Dementia and Technology in Canada. With a background in Marketing, Economics and Consumer Behaviour  you may wonder how does one end up here? and why Canada?

The answer lies in my biggest inspiration : my Grandfather who moved to Canada and finally ended up in the Netherlands again…. opa008

I mean….that’s a nice piece of land though!!!!!

Other reasons and connections will be made throughout the blog.  Like how my part time jobs, taking care of older adults and all other sort of reasons have led to this point…

Because this field isn’t just any field, it is about life, aging, and relationships with other people and objects.
