About Me
We are an academic couple living in Rotterdam. Koen Stapelbroek is a historian working at EUR (Rotterdam) and in Finland and Italy. I, Sophie Raynor, am a mathematician, and rather late beginning my research career. We have lived in our house in Rotterdam for 14 wonderful years - and our children have grown up there. I have a two year postdoc in Sydney so we decided to go on a last big adventure before the kids fly the nest. We hope that another family will enjoy our house while we are away.
