About | Contact

I was trained as an archaeologist but specialized in ethnohistory. For the last twelve years, I have been active as an independent researcher: I am an archaeologist who, in search of primary source material, carries out excavation work in archives.

I examine the provenance and the historical background of ethnographic objects and collections. Within this field of research, I am concentrating on Oceania, (West) Papua, Southeast Asia, Protestant and Catholic missionary collections, and on collections which were collected during scientific and military exploratory expeditions. I have worked for a wide range of (international) clients, including fellow scientists, museums, gallery owners, and private collectors.
