Personal profile

Personal profile

Jan Bergen is a post-doc researcher at the University of Twente. Working on Prof. Peter-Paul Verbeek’s VICI project on Theorizing Technological Mediation, he is focusing on the role of technology in conscious self-development and how to design such technologies in a more responsible manner.

Jan received his PhD from Delft University of Technology in 2017. His dissertation was concerned with the reversibility of nuclear energy technologies. His research focused both on national policy-making as well as on the phenomenological foundations of technological (ir)reversibility.
Jan has a Masters degree in Product Design and Innovation Management (University College of Antwerp) and an MSc in Industrial Ecology (Delft University of Technology)
