I am a generalist particularly interested in complex social systems. I have a BSc. in Construction Engineering and Management and previously worked as a teacher, consultant, researcher, supply chain manager in FMCG, and just completed my MPhil. in System Dynamics and MSc. in Business Administration.

I have experimented with Systems Thinking long before pursuing any formal training and education in System Dynamics, experiencing firsthand the power of the ‘endogenous perspective’ which greatly affected my outlook on life. Eight years after reading my first Systems Thinking book, I am ready to face the next challenge as a modeler and a systems scientist.

Copenicos Groep gives me the opportunity to model, facilitate and learn, doing what I love most in a field of application that expresses all the attributes of complexity. In asset management stakeholders are many and stakes are high. It encompasses the continuous analysis of natural and artificial systems while having the economic, social, and environmental impacts in mind. A goldmine of opportunities for System Dynamics and systems modelers.
