I studied Civil Engineering at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands and followed a specialisation track in Structural Engineering. My interests go out to advanced technology, innovative materials, and automated engineering.

I have worked as a structural engineer with projects in earthquake engineering and automation at Royal HaskoningDHV for approximately 4 years, and I am currently positioned as a lecturer in Structural and Building Engineering at Delft University of Technology.

An earthquake analysis in which a three-storey high building is excited to Soil-Structure-Interaction vibrations.
Finding new shapes of large structures with shape optimisation procedures in order to obtain zero-force actuation.

Moreover, I am greatly focused on working in areas and communities that are highly in need of engineers in order to improve the standards of living. For this reason I also became a member of the Engineers Without Borders team in The Netherlands, and I am currently involved with the following projects:

Liberia - Africa

Building an affordable Cinema and Art house for the local community.

Togo - Africa

Designing a smart energy payment system that can be used for the available electricity grid.

I aim to literally build a better world for all. Therefore, I deeply believe that engineers play a large (if not the largest) part in achieving this goal.
