van Dijk

Privacy researcher
& IT consultant

Friso in Ireland

I am a PhD researcher on privacy governance at the Universiteit Utrecht and IT consultant for P-Direkt. In addition, I have been practicing web development for over 15 years and registered as a small business during my studies. This mixture of skills allows me to combine my research expertise with my creative side. I also blog at, where I write about topics of interest related to my expertise.

If you would like to keep up-to-date with my research, projects and writing, leave your email below. I send out updates and reading tips a few times a year.
