I am a passionate process facilitator with a PhD in ecology, climate change. During my academic career, I studied the interrelatedness of C-fluxes within forest ecosystems. When observing effects of climate change on ecosystems of poplar and eucalypt trees, I gained a lot of experience in in-depth analysis of eco-physiological processes and interactions. After my academic career, I started my own company and developed further my systemic thinking and participatory research skills within the agro-ecological field.
Reintegrating nature as an essential part of any living system: an asset we should all thrive for. As years passed, I further deepened my expertise in helping stakeholders finding nature based solutions by adding the component of the impact of the behaviour of the organisation itself (a living system including its teams and team members ) on the presence of the problems or challenges these stakeholders were seeking to resolve. Awareness rising of the human nature became my newest competence, and since 10 years now I am also a certified (systemic) coach. In HAEDES, I will use the whole of my skills (left and right brain 😉), to facilitate and support the development of nature based solutions within a multi-actor and participatory environment.
