Hi there, I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics and the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Amsterdam. I investigate issues surrounding the energy transition and the climate and ecological crisis from a theoretical and practical perspective.
During my PhD, I worked on Bayesian hypothesis testing, causal inference from observational data, and early warning signals of tipping points. You can view my academic work here.
In addition to my academic work, I am involved with Polder, an initiative that brings complex systems thinking to the policymaking process. I am also deeply concerned about the climate emergency and am very active with Scientist Rebellion. I am an organizer of the Amsterdam Complexity School on Climate Change and in the past have been involved in initiatives that use data and data science to advance the social good, co-founding CorrelAid Nederland, Science versus Corona, and joining the Data Science for Social Good Fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University in 2022.
I greatly enjoy teaching and have given workshops on a variety of topics, including Bayesian statistics, causal inference, and climate action. I always strive to make the learning experience fun and engaging. If you want me to give a workshop on any of these topics, please get in touch.
