Hi! I'm Ruben. I'm a historian working on the history of technocracy, parliamentary history and computational methods.

I'm currently a PhD candidate at Leiden University working on the topic of technocratic reasoning in Dutch parliamentary debate. In past projects I researched the history of nationalism, visual memory and the history of spatial concepts. Much of the work can be found in articles listed on the publications page.

Besides historical research I make use of (and experiment with) computational methods. Check out my GitHub page for digital projects.

The best way to reach me is on ruben [at] rubenros [dot] nl, or at my Leiden University mail.
