About Chris

Climate change is the single greatest problem of our era, with the science leaving no room for doubt. In both my work and my private life I see it a personal responsibility to help get us out of this problem. As an individual there’s plenty one can do, but we need more than a change in individual lifestyles if we’re to create a climate-neutral world: we need change at the systems level.

At CE Delft I’ve found just the right niche for applying my technical know-how and love of systems thinking to ‘greening’ industry. Here, I’ve built up a knowledge of industrial processes, how they can be made more sustainable on paper and why that’s not yet always happening in practice. Within this field I’ve specialised in industrial electrification and the interlinkage between industry and the electricity sector.

I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Twente (BSc) and Delft Technological University (MSc), specialising in energy and processing technologies. After graduating I worked for three years as a process technologist.
