The energy transition is the greatest challenge of our generation. Our energy system is changing so quickly that it’s sometimes hard to separate fact from fiction. Reliable, objective and independent data is needed to take the right political and economical decisions. We are proud of the wide range of organisations that has come to rely on our data. But in the end our motivation is personal: we are working as hard as we can to guarantee a livable future for our children.

Driven by curiosity I am committed to help accelerate the energy transition. During my PhD research in molecular biology, where I studied complex regulatory networks, I specialized in computational data analysis. At DNE Research I use this experience to optimize research processes to increase our insight in the complexity of the electricity grid. This way I want to support our license holders in making data driven decisions.

The renewable energy sector is growing rapidly. In addition to progress, that also means more available data. I use my knowledge in the field of information management and business intelligence to translate that data into high-quality information. Rapid developments within the sector are accompanied by major changes in policy and market forces. With the help of modelling, I want to collect insights that contribute to the resilience of the energy sector.
