In 1996, I graduated at the Delft University of Technology as a Master of Science in Industrial Design Engineering. I started my career in research, development and design of systems for traffic, rail, parking and public transport on a functional level and with customer focus at Volker Rail / Vialis Traffic & Mobility. The last years my focus has been broadened to business development and new technologies for information systems and services.
Since 2008 I have been working at ProRail Business Development / Innovation on new information services and infrastructure solutions for trainoperators, passengers, ProRail Assetmanagement and Operations. My approach in being succesfull is understanding technological opportunities and risks and finding solutions to be combined with operational/legacy systems to serve running and new processes.
Being responsible for IoT within the ProRail Datalab, I am testing a broad range of Internet of Things sensors, networks and data solutions since 2016, for both Assetmanagement and Logistics. My focus is understanding the performance of IoT, measuring models for sensors, user aspects and the merge with Big Data analytics.
