AI will be the next big step for the future of the water industry, from live monitoring to asset management to testing scenarios, there is still much potential for improvement and machine learning and AI techniques will become more important as the challenges increase.

Astronomer by training and drinking water Data Scientist by day, I focus on using data to analyze and improve our processes and actions, to encourage the use of data for decision making and to enlighten colleagues on the possibilities that data provide. I am always looking for new insights, to innovate and move forward in what can be a challenging environment. My work at Vitens so far has touched on smart metering, customer segmentation, water quality, and calculating and monitoring of asset energy usage. In my spare time I like to write and perform music, both by voice and guitar.
