Welcome to the website of Catelijne Coopmans!

My work consists of two  interconnected parts. As an academic, I work in the field of Science & Technology Studies (currently as a Research Fellow at Linköping University) and contribute to efforts to innovate and humanize higher education. As a coach, I support academics and others to keep sane, passionate, and, above all, human in the work we do and the lives we lead.
