At CE Delft I am mainly concerned with energy transition and system analysis. The energy transition is challenging to realise: it requires knowledge from a variety of expertises and a good bird’s eye view. Added to this is the wide variety of stakeholders: governments, energy companies, infrastructure operators and residents. It is precisely this complexity that makes me enjoy working on the energy transition at CE Delft.
Before CE Delft, I worked for three years at EBN as an advisor innovation new energy technologies. There I was involved in research and advise on the production of green gas and hydrogen, and on the energy system of the Netherlands. I worked in the field of technological development and potential, the current energy system and scenario analysis and gave advise to governments and energy companies. My strength lies in translating complex issues into concrete solutions, based on systems thinking.
I have a background in Applied Earth Sciences and Applied Geophysics (TU Delft, RWTH Aachen, ETH Zurich). After that, I completed a PhD in continuous seismic oscillations observations and modelling at IPGP, Sorbonne in Paris.
At CE Delft, I use my experience in public-private partnerships, and my expertise in sustainable gases and the Dutch energy system for projects related to system integration and the energy transition.
