About me

Probabilistic forecasts - Central to my work is the study and use of probabilistic forecasts for (especially) severe weather and applications in hydrology, among others. I work together with TU Delft, Deltares, UNESCO-IHE, Rijkswaterstaat and MET Norway.


Since November 2016, I have been cooperating with TU Delft in the STW-project "Probabilistic forecasts of extreme weather utilizing advanced methods from extreme value theory". To promote the use of probabilistic forecasts in hydrology, KNMI is organizing a course together with Deltares. I'm also involved in the G4INDO project in Indonesia and in the calibration of short-term ensembles of weather models (GLAMEPS and HarmonEPS).
