After graduation at the TU Delft, I have been working for ten years in the maritime sector for a large engineering company, Royal HaskoningDHV. Over the years I have gained experience in a variety of maritime infrastructural projects in several countries abroad, including Ghana, Libya, Qatar, the UAE, Denmark, Bangladesh and Vietnam, but also a lot in the Netherlands for predominantly the Port of Rotterdam. I combine my technical knowledge with my management skills: pro-actively motivating a team, focus on the client’s needs, while maintaining a good overview on the main issues, quality of deliverables, the planning and costs of the project.
In 2017 we founded The Weather Makers, I saw a fantastic opportunity to use my coastal engineering skills and experience for regreening projects. Watershed wide ecosystem restoration origins at the coast, making coastal engineering and reuse of dredged sediments key to success.« Back to Glossary Index
