Experience before YEP
I worked as water consultant at Tauw bv in the Netherlands for more than two years. The first 1,5 year I followed their traineeship, which gave me the opportunity to work on three different departments: Water management; Water treatment and Spatial planning. When completing my traineeship, I continued working on the Spatial planning department and was mainly active in integrated urban water projects.
During my studies, I spend 5 months in Ecuador to collect data of the hydrological cycle of the paramo area in the field as input for my thesis: Water balance of the Zuletarian paramo. Furthermore, I spend 8 months in Nicaragua to fulfill my internschip at Waterschap Rijn en IJssel. I worked on the project: Clean water for La Libertad. I mainly spend my time in setting up a monitoring program to collect hydrological data of the river Mico catchment, in cooperation with five municipalities.
