Talks & media

Contact me via henriette.cramer (at) for talk requests in either English or Dutch. I’ve been a speaker at for example Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, as well as Twitter, IBM, Netflix events.

In more formal teaching settings, I’ve been a studio instructor on ‘autonomous things’ in Stanford’s Winter 2016 CS 247 HCI design studio, and taught research methods, and applied knowledge systems courses at the University of Amsterdam.
