My goal is to inspire professionals through science related events and courses and in that way help them to take steps in the major transitions (such as those of energy, circularity, food). With transfer of knowledge and the latest scientific insights from the WUR, I help them to increase the impact of their activities with which they can contribute to the realization of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
Besides working on international projects I have extensive experience in working in rural areas of the Netherlands with various stakeholders. Throughout my career I have worked at: farmers association LTO (8 years), the goverment agency for land & water management DLG (5 years) and consultancy firm ARCADIS (6 years). More recently, while working as an independent consultant, I got involved in marine issues.
