Although I grew up listening to music from Status Quo in the car with my dad, I always like to challenge the status quo. Therefore I am slightly allergic to the statement “aren’t things just fine the way they are?” Perhaps they are. But I am confident that things can always be improved, whether on personal or professional level. While doing so, I love to make people laugh. Most preferably through terrible puns; the worse the better.
The drive to always challenge the status quo in my personal life, resonates with my drive to be part of the NEON research. I am fascinated by the transition to a more sustainable world and I am particularly intrigued by the role smart mobility can play. The complex puzzle of technological development paired with human behavior is not a puzzle easily solved. However still, such an interesting puzzle to solve. Therefor I think it is the most beautiful opportunity to work on NEON and to be a part of this team who all share the same core beliefs and unite under the same most purposeful cause: to leave the world as a better place than we found it.
Our team will focus on Smart and Safe mobility. Smart mobility is essential to decrease energy usage and to increase quality of life. Within this work package and team I will focus on large scale mobility simulation which integrates the latest technological developments such as (semi) autonomous- and electric vehicles, and services such as carsharing and Mobility as a Service.
