As an economic geographer I strive to make our food chains more sustainable. I pursue this through business endeavours, creative interventions and by forging new alliances. You can count on me to give people and organizations new ideas, be bold and work hard. I am constantly working on innovation in agriculture in food in a number of ways, but I have a particular interest in datascience and sustainable crop cultivation. Additionally I work as moderator leading debates on economics, politics, sustainability, agriculture, food and cinema (in Dutch and English). Growing up in the countryside and currently living in the city I like to enjoy the best of both worlds.
