He is a founding member of the Material Archival Studies Network and part of the Dispositives research group, of the Network for Experimental Media Archaeology, as well as the Technology and the Humanities project. He is the author of Inventing Cinema : Machines, Gestures and Media History (Amsterdam University Press, 2019).
