Sharing a love of knowledge of the complex

I'm excited about the explanation of the concepts of basic research to non-experts. Nowadays, the dwindling number of students choosing scientific subjects is in sharp contrast with the demand of scientists in all different roles of society (so not only to work at universities or research labs like CERN).

Science is considered either hard or boring or both. This is particularly interesting as the jobs that scientists hold are typically not boring at all, these are some of the more wanted jobs in society but in some way or another, this concept is not conveyed to high school students when they choose or plan their future.

I have substantial experience in public speaking on complex science topics, in Dutch and English, ranging from primary school students, corporate settings, to music festivals, reaching the general public but of course scientists of many disciplines. I am open to invitations for public speaking at all levels.
