During my study at TU Eindhoven I developed a passion for the developments in the field of design optimisation and, in a broader sense, the use of the computer in the design process. The opportunity to start a work group in this area at ABT, together with colleagues, made the decision to join ABT easier.
I have always enjoyed working at ABT. I have been able to apply my knowledge of design optimisation and develop it further, for example, in my work for the National Military Museum in Soesterberg. ABT has also proven to be a good learning school for learning to be a constructor.
In 2012, I decided to focus more on infrastructural projects, specialising in the dynamic behaviour of pedestrian bridges and fatigue problems in steel bridges. This specialisation was used in the design of the Voldijk bridge, the Rabo bridge and various existing bridges, whereby measurements were carried out and suitable measures recommended.
Besides my activities at ABT, I work part-time as an external teacher at the University of Applied Sciences Arnhem and Nijmegen (HAN), where I take care of the constructive subjects for several part-time courses.
