About me

I am a Senior Geophysicist with the Seismology and Acoustics department at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI). I make use of seismic and acoustic data for the study of these waves in the Earth, Ocean & Atmosphere. My efforts have contributed to the use of infrasound for atmospheric remote sensing, the monitoring of natural hazards and the verification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). For my research, I have developed algorithms for data processing and infrasound propagation modelling. I am currently responsible for the operations of KNMI's microbarometer array network and I am interested in synergies with other measurement techniques. Before joining KNMI in 2015, I worked at the National Center for Physical Acoustics in Oxford, MS, USA and the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) near Paris, France.
