Postdoc project "From Toilet to Food". This multi-disciplinairy research project looks at the recovery of nutrients from wastewater, to be used in agriculture for food production. I use a sanitation water technology agricultural systems approach to analyse the possibilities for re-using nutrients from waste water in agriculture.

BSc&MSc in International Land and Water Management, Wageningen University. PhD Degree at the Water Resource Management Group.

In my PhD study I analysed what drip irrigation does, and for whom, in a farmer managed irrigation system in Northern Morocco. With an historical analysis I studied the co-evolution of the irrigation infrastructure and the management of the irrigation system. This PhD study raised questions on resource use efficiency, a theme I will further work on in my postdoc project.
