I have an open mind-set. I’m European & future oriented, passionately inspired by Nature, science & experiences.
I have completed my MSc. in Coastal & Marine Studies at the University of the Algarve (Portugal). As a creative consultant, expert & project manager, with more than 20 years of experience, it is my ambition to contribute to create solutions supporting humans and Nature. I like to team up with other experts & scientists to find truly sustainable solutions in the field of marine, offshore, ocean & coastal science & engineering. I have the ability to incorporate my expertise into typically disassociated fields. I’m equipped with energy & persistency to merge broad interests. My core field of expertise is related to ocean & offshore renewable energy, coastal systems and morphology, but also system and design thinking.
I’m a believer of design thinking, data-science, the use of artificial intelligence, neural networks & machine learning as next step for consultancy & engineering. I’m convinced that collaboration with citizens, local communities & stakeholders, to promote understanding of the oceans, seas and coast, is essential for a better future.
As Chief Soul Officer, I will facilitate living & leading from a place of authenticity and courage to realise a fulfilling existence of HAEDES, creating the added value our stakeholders are looking for. By leaning into our purpose I want to unleash our wildest potential and maximum impact in the world. Taking responsibility for nurturing both our science skills and our souls.
My role within the company as Chief Strategy Officer is to discover the path to realise our dream and translate our strategy into implementation. But also to initiate the strategic R&D, build strategic partnerships and to prepare HAEDES for future challenges.
