Geo-data & ICT
Growing up in the Sahel, I became fascinated by the interaction between humans and their environment. In the sahel, water is of utmost importance and people have very little means to control their environment. My experiences as a child lead me to study Earth Sciences at Utrecht University. I graduated as environmental geochemist and took additional classes in Sustainable Development. Until april 2019 I worked at Deltares at the groundwater department as an expert in GIS & Geodata management for Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) around the world, but especially in Africa.
I presently work as a lecturer in Geo-ICT at the Geo, Media & Design study at Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Almere (NL). I teach subjects like Data management, GIS, Web development and multi-hazard risk assessment. Ofcourse I am a proponent of using Open Source GIS voor resources management in developing countries.
I work at Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Almere (NL) as teacher Datascience & Geo-ICT for the studies Earth & Climate, Geo Media & Design and Sustainable Business Administration. I teach courses such as web development, data analysis for market research, GIS and other subjects related to spatial data management and analysis. Aeres offers certicificate courses, bachelor's and master's programmes in the area of food, nature, agribusiness and equine business. Aeres University has faculties in Almere, Dronten and Wageningen. The Aeres family of eductional organisations comprises 7 more schools at the Dutch MBO-level, which is equal to the international BTEC level 3 diploma.
