I am a hydrologist with a keen interest in the real-time flood prediction problem. I gained my expertise in a large number of research and consultancy projects for multiple clients both within and outside of The Netherlands. I have a cum laude M.Sc. degree in Water Resources Management (awarded by Delft University of Technology) as well as an M.A. degree in International Relations (awarded by DCU, Dublin). In 2015, I completed my PhD research concerning predictive hydrological uncertainty. My research interests include: what is the probability of flooding in the near future? what are the benefits of expressing predictions in terms of probability? how do we evaluate probability forecasts?
