Structuring websites and the content on it

The biggest challenges in my work consists of designing  websites. I enyoyed the time working on the department Communication. Now there is a new challenge for me as a research assistent on the  department Coastal Systems.


The past 7 years I have worked in this organisation as a project manager of the WaLTER project. Besides running the central office, I was responsible for the external communication and the maintenance of the project website. Before this assignment I have had various jobs. When I almost finished my study Communication and Desktop Publishing, I worked at the union for the graphics sector in Amsterdam. Although I missed the graphic challenges, it was an interesting function which made me stay working there for a number of years. It felt really good to help people by providing information and preparing their defences. During these years I was also involved in all kinds of communication issues such as company logo design and house style development.

In 1995 I moved to the Island Texel and became a local reporter specialized in the life stories of new Texelaars. At NIOZ I was very lucky to use my creative working experience again. The tasks I’m most interested in are developing, designing and maintaining websites. These challenges bring me a lot of joy and energy. Since May 2017, I have been appointed as a research assistant for the department of Coastal Systems. This also includes the continuation of my work on the websites Walterwaddenmonitor, AcroporaNet, Flatfishsympoisa and Wadden & Delta Research Centre.
