I am a consultant of ‘the next generation’. With fresh ideas and a different mind-set I mainly work on circular economy projects related to the water and wastewater sector. After finishing my study at Wageningen University, focused on analysing and solving environmental sustainability issues I joined Royal HaskoningDHV in 2016. As a specialist in the field of urban systems engineering, my challenge is to close urban resource cycles by the development and implementation of technologies, infrastructure and management systems. Depending on the project, the emphasis is on individual components (water, energy or resources) or an integral approach is adopted. This background enables me to clearly identify environmental and sustainability issues, to analyse these issues and to translate them into concepts or solutions for the purpose of closing urban resource cycles. In this way, I am aiming to contribute to a better (urban) living environment.
