I am a PhD candidate at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) at the University of Amsterdam, affiliated with the program group Political Sociology. My doctoral project concerns the discourse of choice in end-of-life care in Europe, particularly the phenomenon of suicide tourism to Switzerland as a new kind of “chosen death”. I am also a member of the OPEN Foundation, an independent not-for-profit NGO, based in the Netherlands, whose focus is to stimulate academic research into therapeutic applications of psychedelics, the MIND Foundation based in Berlin, and the Rotterdam Psychedelic Science Collective. It is my aim to merge my academic research on the experience of death and dying in the ‘West’ with the potential of psychedelic-assisted therapy to address the existential concerns of dying today.
