My education consists of the master Ecology with a focus on marine biology. During my masters, I finished two internships in which I investigated the nursery function of the North sea for different commercial fish species using statistical models. These models were created using the statistical program R.
In my previous function, I worked as a data-analyst for an Environmental Service organization. During my time there, I worked on risk assessment models and (big) data analyses in the program SPSS Modeler.
Now I work as project leader of the Ballast Water test facility in Den Helder where we perform projects in which we test the efficacy of Ballast Water Management Systems (BWMS). Furthermore, I work as project manager in which I support project leaders with the management of large projects. In this role, I am also part of the Acquisition Support Team.
