Scientific Web Developer

Joris Eekhout

I’m a professional web developer with a special interest in the scientific field. In 2014 I successfully defended my PhD thesis at Wageningen University, the Netherlands. During the period as a PhD student, I came to realise that a lot of science is not well communicated to a broader audience. I would like to bridge the gap that exists between scientists and the general public. One way to realise this is by presenting your research project, research group or personal research achievements on a modern website. In the period after my PhD defence, I specialized in web design, which includes HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap and WordPress. With these techniques I am able to make responsive websites, which are both suitable for desktop and mobile devices. I also enjoy making infographics and data visualisations, see Examples.
