As Arup’s Digital Twin Leader in Europe, I am passionate about digital transformation and fully believe it is an enabler to (re)shape a better and a more sustainable world.

During the past 14 years, I have been involved in several projects related to ‘performance-based design’, ‘digital transformation’, ‘data analytics’, ‘data-driven design’ and ‘digital twin’.

As an innovation manager, I successfully developed new performance and data-driven approaches in the field of sustainable design and efficient operation. I also have been involved in several smart building projects focusing on improving indoor air quality, increasing user productivity, and reducing environmental impact. Besides, I possessed a broad experience in the field of research and development on a national as well as international level. I have led several FP7 and Horizon2020 research projects in the field of BIM, data driven services and performance-based design. I have delivered a Digital Twin for two headquarters in the Netherlands.
