Cultural historian Van Hannedea Nederveen Meerkerk, who once lived in Brazil, earned her doctorate with a thesis on the rise of the city of Recife, from 1630 till 1654 the administrative centre of the WIC-settlement New-Holland in north-eastern Brazil. She has holds a Master degree in History of Art and Archaeology (Utrecht University) and a Doctors degree in Architecture (Delft University of Technology)

In 2000, she was co-founder of the MoWIC Foundation (www.mowic.nl), a non-profit organization that is committed to scientific research and conservation of monuments and the cultural heritage of the Netherlands West India Company (WIC).
