I am a PhD Candidate in geosciences, working at Utrecht University and curious about processes that control rock material behaviour. I am mainly focussing on geomechanics and transport behavior related to energy storage and storage of nuclear waste in rock salt formations. My main motivation is to use knowledge of the earth's subsurface to contribute to a future in which we start to use our subsurface as a place for (energy) storage in a sustainable way (CCS, hydrogen storage, nuclear waste) instead of solely using our subsurface for (hydrocarbon) exploration.
