I am program director of the knowledge development program: Circular and Climate Neutral Society (Wagningen-UR). It is my passsion to develop partnerships that jointly seek for circular and climate neutral solutions such that we can contribute to the realization of the SGDs. In my work I make use of the theory of transition management for the large scale implementation of circular an climate neutral solutions. In my research I like to integrate physical process-based research with social learning and participatory policy development. Since 2020 I am co-managing the European Joint Program on Agricultural Soils under climate Change in close collaboration with INRAE.
