Expertise

Affordable housing is my passion.  I am an assistant professor Housing Management at the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, department of Management in the Built Environment (MBE). My research and teaching activities focus on three key topics:

  1. resource and energy efficiency of affordable housing
  2. cross-sector partnerships for affordable housing
  3. the role of housing providers in supporting vulnerable places and people

I worked in social housing for over 25 years. Before joining TU Delft I worked as a strategy consultant at RIGO Research en Advies in Amsterdam, and as a policy consultant and manager at housing associations in the east and north of the Netherlands. I completed a 'Social Housing' bachelor's degree at Hogeschool Midden-Brabant in Tilburg in 1989 and supplemented this with a master's degree in Management Studies, specialising in Strategy and Organisation in 2003. In March 2016 I successfully defended his 'Networks and Fault lines' PhD-research on The Role of Housing Associations in Neighbourhood Regeneration Governance: a network perspective”.
