Jeroen holds a degree from Delft University of Technology, where he studied Civil Engineering and specialised in Water Resources Management. He also studied Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure at KTH in Stockholm and wrote part of his Master’s thesis at Monash University in Melbourne. Jeroen’s main expertise is in the field of urban water management, in particular where technology meets socio-economics. He has worked in developing countries delivering village scale drinking water facilities in Benin, and through his work at UNESCO-IHE he is involved in a capacity building project for flood management in Senegal. Recently, he analysed the adaptive potential of cities in the Netherlands as part of a national study on the theme “climate adaptation in urban areas” for the Dutch national research programme Knowledge for Climate.
Jeroen’s involvement in the Centre for Water Sensitive Cities includes:
- a link to the Urban Water Futures theme, within the Urban Water Governance Program, through his PhD research (Strategies to Enhance Adaptive Governance in the Urban Water Sector) and Masters research (Mainstreaming Innovations in urban Water Management: Case Studies in Melbourne and the Netherlands)
- his role as a Research Team Member – P6 (Society and Institutions), within the Cities as Water Supply Catchments Program
