explore the projects I've worked on

Growing up in the Sahel, I became fascinated by the interaction between humans and their environment at a young age. 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.

I work at Deltares, which is a leading, independent, Netherlands-based research institute and specialist consultant for matters relating to water, soil and the subsurface. We apply our advanced expertise to help people live safely and sustainably in delta areas, coastal zones and river basins.
