In 2016 Guus graduated with on the effect of floods along the Belgian Meuse for the Netherlands. Matthijs Kok was the committee chair. After his thesis, he started working at HKV, where he still works for 3 days a week as flood risk consultant. Since September 2019 he combines this with a PhD research for 2 days a week at the TU Delft, under supervision of Oswaldo Morales Napoles.
Currently Guus is working on expert elicitation in flood risk, hence the title of the PhD project: Elicitation of Multivariate Uncertainty for assessment of Flood Defense standards. This matches nicely with the work he has been doing for HKV the past years on levee safety in the Netherlands.
