I have been working at CE Delft since 2002, and have served as sectoral manager Transport and coordinator, Transport climate policy and Mobility and infrastructure since 2004. After graduating in applied physics, I studied business sciences and also completed a course in acting. I can readily switch between the realms of natural science, policy planning and communication processes. I have an analytical mind, good communications skills and an infectious enthusiasm.

I often give presentations and interviews on climate policy and the transition to sustainable transport systems, and regularly write columns on these topics.
