Teun Joshua Brandt

Teun Joshua Brandt is studying for a PhD at the University of Groningen, researching symbiosis in contemporary science fiction. His fascination for the consensus within the scientific community about the profound symbiotic entanglement of humans and microbes drives him to try and find out how this impacts the way we view ‘being human’. He achieved his Master’s degree in 2022, graduating summa cum laude with his dissertation on deep sea narratives in the Anthropocene. In his spare time he plays with one of his bands in small music venues or at parties, unless he’s busy watering his city garden.
