AboutWeb developer turned industrial ecology researcher. Focus on urban metabolism, and combining Industrial Ecology with IT tools.
DetailsI am passionate about open collaboration initiatives, exploring the challenges and opportunities around urban sustainability, and learning from and about nature.
In my work, I have been involved in a variety of initiatives and projects. I have (co-) founded a number of companies and non-profits, and my roles have included that of manager, researcher, web developer, teacher, and consultant.
Currently I am the Executive Director at the International Society for Industrial Ecology and I am involved in a number of urban metabolism teaching and research projects run by Metabolism of Cities.
I grew up in The Netherlands but spent my adult life in Nicaragua, South Africa and Colombia. I enjoy nature photography and am currently trying to learn more about the fauna and flora in the Valle de Aburrá, Colombia.
