About me

I am a marine biologist by training & obtained my Ph.D. at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (now Netherlands Institute for Sea Research) in 1998 on the adaptation of marine microalgae to fluctuating irradiances, caused by vertical mixing of the water column. Part of the work for this thesis was carried out at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York. After obtaining my Ph.D. I worked as a science communication officer for the Netherlands Institute of Ecology, and as Policy Advisor for the strategy department of the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water management in the Hague. During this period I published the book Hoogwater, concerning the Dutch water management in the past and in the future. In addition, I wrote the “Isis” future scenarios, which were used to generate a corporate discussion about the long-term strategy of the ministry. On the side, I am also a PADI dive instructor.
