An Agile mindset and the courage to pivot led her to bringing Agile into the world. For 2 years, she worked at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies in Leiden, before pursuing doctoral research at Humboldt University in Berlin. Focus: the relationship between academic culture and research behaviour, especially how perfomance indicators impact motivation and research quality. Next to her PhD in Berlin, she joined a small Agile startup, guiding organisations on their transformation path to become more participative. Self-organisation won her heart, it is not only extremely interesting, but also bridges the gap between the natural and the social sciences.
