thesis Hi, welcome to my vanity domain! The place to be for people who type my name into their google search box ;-).

The content of this page is mostly taken from my old scientific website at the University of Amsterdam, where I did a PhD in Physics at the Van 't Hoff Institute of Molecular Sciences, in the group of Computational Chemistry and Physics. This page has hardly been updated since then, except for the occasional change in my CV, so view it as a snapshot of my old research page. Since then I've worked for four and a half years as a consultant in simulation and modelling. In that time I developped new fluid modelling capabilities for Shell's in-house reservoir simulator. In Januari 2013 I joined Shell as a permanent staff member, as a Reservoir Engineer for the Carbonate Research Team where I specialized in naturally fractured reservoirs. Since July 2018 this team merged into the Geology and New Reservoir Types Team. In November 2019 I joined the Subsurface Modelling Technology team as a Product Owner Integrated Software, of a development team that develops part of Shell's in-house integrated reservoir modelling software. In this capacity I'm responsible for features having to do with visualisation, QA/QC, data analysis (including machine learning and AI) and interfacing with external simulation, analysis and visualization tools. In Januari 2021 I was given the role of Domain Expert.
