I am a research consultant with much academic and practical experience in Community Informatics. I am connected to a large international network of researchers and practitioners.
My main R&D expertise is in (online) community building and sensemaking, collaboration systems analysis & design, the effective use of social media, and the societal impact of the Internet.
I provide a broad range of services to organizations, and (interorganizational) communities and networks. My clients are mainly in, but not limited to, the non-profit sector (education, research, government, innovation networks, public libraries, etc.).
Through my community mapping services I help your network make sense of its collaboration complexity. Based on the community maps, I can also make a collaboration quickscan: a practical diagnosis of your collaboration processes and systems that provides you with concrete recommendations for their improvement.
