Annemarie Muntendam-Bos appointed part-time associate professor
The GSE department appointed Dr. Annemarie Muntendam-Bos part-time associate professor in the area of induced seismicity as per 1 January 2019.
Annemarie has studied Geophysics, specialisation Seismology, at the University of Utrecht. She conducted her Masters Thesis research on the recurrence of intermediate depth earthquakes at Princeton University’, and graduated at University of Utrecht in 1997. For two years she worked in the oil- and gas industry at the ‘on-board processing’-department of Geco-Prakla (Schlumberger) before returning to the University of Utrecht as a PhD student in 1999. For four years she conducted research into inter-seismic and co-seismic deformation derived from geodetic observations. On the 11th of November, 2003 Annemarie obtained her PhD.
Annemarie continued her academic carreer as a post-doctoral researcher at SRON before joining TNO in 2006. At TNO, she specialized in geomechanical research on induced seismicity and subsidence associated with the development of natural resources. In addition, she provided expert advice to the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs and the State Supervision of Mines (SodM). In May 2012 Annemarie joined SodM as senior specialist inspector. Since, she has been one of the main experts involved in the Groningen induced seismicity problem. Annemarie will be seconded from the State Supervision of Mine one day per week to perform her research at the GSE department hosted in the Applied Geology section. Annemarie is looking forward to discussing with all staff and students of the Faculty!
