Amanda is fascinated by nature’s role in solving societal problems. Her work focuses on complex spatial and societal issues and sustainable goals for both people and nature. In this, she strives to connect the physical, technical, political, and social aspects at hand. Currently, she works on the interrelations between biodiversity and different sectors, and how these contribute to transformative change for biodiversity, in the EU-projects BIONEXT and Shared Green Deal. 

 

Previously, Amanda worked at Wageningen Environmental Research and the IPBES technical support unit on scenarios and models. A Wageningen University graduate, she holds a BSc and MSc in International Land and Water Management. She also took two minors on the future of the city; one at the Technical University of Delft and one at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. This helped her expand her knowledge of architecture.

 

Outside office hours, you’ll find Amanda around the house or working in the garden.
