Article Archives

Here you'll find the various articles I've written in the past for academic purposes. They've been written in Dutch, and though I've considered translating them in English, it's not something I'm likely to do any time soon because of the workload involved. If you don't understand Dutch, but one of these articles interests you and you want to know more about it, feel free to contact me.
