Water & Environment

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.
