I was born in Roermond, a relatively small though cosy city in the south of the Netherlands, and grew up in Horn, a small village nearby. I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree whilst studying in Eindhoven at the Technical University: I completed my Bachelor in Industrial Engineering in 2013, whereas I recently have completed my Master in Innovation Management in May of 2016. My main interests are related to business processes, models and strategy and decision making, whereas I’m also interested in how innovations can change and improve these elements. Not surprisingly, both degrees have already presented me with a good basis on these elements, allowing me to continue to explore these interests.
I will participate within the Information Systems department as part of a PhD project, which will be aimed at developing a method or tool to determine the feasibility of business models for companies which operate in a service-based environment. I hope to present a valuable contribution during my time as a PhD student, but also to learn more and further develop myself during this project, as well as to engage in new collaborations and cooperations!
