"Helping students to make highly complex societal challenges comprehensible by using insights from transition theory."
I started out in 1999 by consulting businesses and governmental organizations in Urban Water Management. In 2008 I became a part-time lecturer at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences where I have developed the Bachelor Water Management. Now I am full-time lecturer and researcher. In 2018 I have developed the Master River Delta Development where I am now part of the management team.
"It’s really fulfilling to come up with innovative solutions for actual problems. It’s absolutely thrilling if you are able to do that by combining practical research, theoretical insights and raw creativity. That’s what I aim for in living labs."
