In September 2020, I joined CE Delft’s Mobility & Transport department as senior researcher/consultant. In addition to my responsibilities as a researcher/advisor, I also hold the position of manager of the Mobility & Transport department.
I have studied physics at Siegen University in Germany and at the Instituto Baleseiro in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. During my master and my PhD research at Radboud University Nijmegen, I studied experimental questions about cosmic rays. My focus was on the analysis of large data sets from the Pierre Auger Observatory and the development of a new technology to measure the highest energetic particles in the universe.
Between 2014 and 2020 I worked as (junior/medior/senior) researcher at Significance, an research institute specialized in quantitative research on mobility and transport. My main activities were the development and the application of transport models for passengers, freight and aviation and the analysis of large data sets. The project goal was usually the development of a tool that allows policy makers to compare and evaluate the effects of different policies or to give advice in a politically sensitive context.
I am analytically strong and enjoy to be challenged in finding creative solutions to complex problems. Under time pressure, I am able to make good choices taking into account quality, feasibility and the requirements of the stakeholders.
