Jeroen obtained his Civil Engineering bachelor’s degree at Delft University of Technology with a minor in quantitative economics from the University of Melbourne. The complex balances between engineering challenges and cost effectiveness are what led Jeroen to pursue a MSc in Offshore and Dredging Engineering. In 2015, he co-initiated Project Yogya, a student-run volunteer project in Indonesia that provided the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works with a feasibility and development assessment of the Yogyakarta harbor. His graduation research, commissioned by Great Lakes Dredge and Dock in Chicago, focuses on CSD spillage models.
