About me

The common theme in my career is investigating and communicating in (operational) meteorology, setting up new training material/lessons/products and being an intermediar between KNMI and all kind of clients within and outside our institute. As a meteorology student I became interested in practical research and all kinds of questions amongst meteorology: e.g: "Can we understand and predict dynamical processes in the atmosphere especially related to convection”. I work as a trainer/developer and climate adviser in De Bilt. In addition to these activities, I give lectures about all kinds of subject in Climate and weather for a broad group of people including students and HOVO Utrecht .

I prepare and provide all kinds of physical and online trainings for internal KNMI staff but also for the JMG in Woensdrecht. Setting up simulator training for aviation meteorologist; Maintaining and upgrading a severe weather database; add complex weathersituations in close relationship with mesoscale model development. Beiing a meteorological and climate adviser for a variety of clients and PR-activities. I am also involved in the IPCC Dutch Coordination Group.
