Dr.ir. M.M. (Martine) Rutten



Dr. ir. Martine Rutten is associate professor Water Management and Climate adaptation. She has a background in civil engineering with specializations Hydraulic Engineering (ETHZurich) and Water resources management (TUDelft) and a PhD degree on remote sensing for water resources management. Parallel to her PhD she developed education programs for Integrated water resources management at Lentiz Vocational university, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and universities abroad. This broad integrated perspective is also reflected in her research portfolio which spans a wide set of topics, from nexus modelling, to optimal control to citizen science. She has a strong background in transdisciplinary learning for water resources management and vast experience with learning communities and living labs.


In September 2019 she started the Delta Futures lab. The Delta Futures lab is a multidisciplinary network for MSc-students, staff and practice with the ambition to become interdisciplinary leaders in spatial design, engineering and governance of deltas. The Lab unites master students, researchers and professionals in multidisciplinary projects. It enriches and supports master students in becoming the mission-oriented engineers that future delta societies need. More information can be found on deltafutureslab.org.

 She is also acting as scientific lead and learning community coordinator for the theme Climate Adaptation at The Green Village. At TGV she conducts transdisciplinary research together with different academic disciplines, applied universities, vocation education, entrepreneurs, municipalities, water boards, provinces and other actors in this field.
