Dr. Diederik Jekel
Diederik explains Beta Sciences in an accessible way on radio, television, internet and in his book. Diederik obtained his master’s degree in solid state physics in 2010 and then did research very briefly at the University of Twente. In October 2010 he had the opportunity to talk about science in De Wereld Draait Door and since then he has been a full-time science journalist. He gives presentations on science and communication to children, adults, industrialists, scientists and managers. Coming from academia and now working in the media industry, he has a good perspective on what both worlds want. His mission is to inspires people.
