Hi, I’m Maarten.

I write, podcast, teach and coach

  • I’m currently writing a book (in Dutch) with Noordboek Uitgeverij provisionally titled We Are Rational. I also publish essays on cognitive psychology (used to have >100.000 monthly views on Medium), op-eds in newspapers (like this one on fake news) and papers in academic journals.
  • In my (Dutch) podcast, I interview interesting thinkers (like Damiaan Denys, Jeroen de Ridder and Sander van der Linden) on cool intellectual and societal topics.
  • I teach at Radboud University.
  • I also coach people in information management and writing (would love to have you!), and teach an online course on personal knowledge management that I’m very proud of: Academic Mastery with Roam. Sign up to master the process from “I have read a bunch of papers” to “I now have synthesized the literature and have a set of promising angles of attack on my research problem”. More information here.

Every week, I publish a new essay on my blog. Join 15.000 fellow enthusiasts and subscribe below!
