The vast majority of activities during my career have focused on fire safety, which has enabled me to develop a strong focus on this area. In recent years medium and large fires have caused a lot of social damage, which in my opinion and current knowledge could have been prevented in a large number of cases if the correct substantiation had been available. The economic and social consequences of these fires are hugely underestimated!


My research will focus on developing a fire safety economics decision-making roadmap to complement insights that may be gained from fire safety engineering with micro-economic insights. The general research question is the following: “How can a roadmap be scientifically developed such that economic information becomes part of the fire prevention decision-making process? The Roadmap will lead to optimized decision-making with much more focus on sustainable solutions with respect to fire prevention. It also will act as an inspiration for product development and innovation. A new business model will be developed that will lead to sustainable and smart fire prevention.
