"It is great to deliver a contribution to complex structures and experience the power of knowledge sharing. Every time it fascinates me to work with a project team designing sustainable, future-proof buildings and then see them become reality."


At ABT we often talk about pushing the boundaries. This is exactly what drives me. In 2010, I graduated cum laude from TU Eindhoven. Since then, I have been working at our comfortable office in Velp.

I like to be challenged by complex structures and the power of knowledge sharing. I find it fascinating to work with a project team designing sustainable, future-proof buildings and see them become reality.

What I do at ABT

At ABT, I work as project leader structures and Registred Structural Engineer. I have worked on museums such as De Bastei, residential towers at Bajeskwartier and I was lead structural engineer on integral projects such as Jonas’ Amsterdam. I am also involved in healthcare projects, including the development of Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland.

I enjoy giving guest lectures at colleges and universities. In addition, I have a passion for complex glass structures, like the ultra-slim hybrid staircase in our office in Velp, the glass balconies at the Eusebius church in Arnhem and the 5.5-metre-high glass Arkel Erker in Nijmegen.

You can always contact me to make the impossible come true, from the first sketch to completion.

My dream for the future

Developments in the field of digitalization and knowledge sharing are moving fast. Within ABT, I work on BRiCks to facilitate our calculations and the Galleo platform for project data.

My dream for the future is that we create added value by combining our daily project experience with intelligent tools to reach integral and sustainable goals: more knowledge, less CO2.
